Description:

With the Steiner House Adolf Loos introduced the concept of "raumplan": a new way of conceiving the multi leveled living spaces organized according to economy and functionality and not by fixed schemes.

The Steiner house became a highly influential example of modern architecture; it played a significant role in establishing Loos' reputation as a modern architect to the audience outside of the Viennese community, and became an obligatory reference for architects during the 1920s and 30s. Almost all of the literature of the Modern Movement has reproduced the garden façade as an indisputable example of radical rationalist modern architecture.

The stripped façade was rapidly assimilated into the formal purism of the 1920s and was the major reason for the success of the building. info source: www.galinsky.com

...his pioneering 'Raumplan' concept - designing continuous spaces for living rather than regularly divided floors with limited flexibility. info source: www.designaddict.com

Loos was a remarkable architect when working within the limits imposed by the shape of the site or external forces like the planning codes. The regulations only permitted a street front with one story and a dormer window (a window built in a sloping roof). The large window at the front brings light into the atelier of the painter, which was situated on the first level. The garden facade is three storied and with the use of the semi-circular metal-sheathed roof Loos manages to articulate the transition between the front and garden elevations. info source: architecture.about.com
