Revolutionary architecture in the east of Saxony: Monument of Modernism, built by Hans Scharoun in 1933.
The Haus Schminke by Hans Scharoun is one of four outstanding examples of the styles "New Architecture" and "International style" (architecture). It is in each of the architectural encyclopedias. The house was customized to meet the needs of the owner as well as the need to complement the natural environments by impressive solutions. The Haus Schminke was registered and finally placed under memorial protection in 1978. In 1930, Hans Scharoun designed the house for Fritz Schminke who was the owner of a noodles' factory in Loebau, Saxony, Germany. The realization was both at the same time, fancy and functionally adequate. A curved main body, terraces, outside stairs and numerous round, porthole shaped windows inspire the connotation to a steamship. Rooms merge flowingly; generous grasslands involve the garden as an extension of living space as well. Beside span and lucency, manifold design elements form the spatial experience.
