Description  After showing Sam Bronner some of his houses Loos got the commission to design a house for him. The house should be situated in the center of Vienna enclosing four lots, surrounded by huge housing blocks. To avoid total enclosure the house should be lifted on a pedestal filled with service rooms. The house seemed to be one of the three nave type, of which the middle part is increased. The garden is situated in the south. House Wittgenstein, architecturally designed by Paul Engelman, is clearly inspired by this one. Later proposals for this house Bronner drift away from the original design. At last Kulka published a plan that is full of pomp and circumstance. Because of the different proposals it was difficult to show one end design. The entrance was, as usual, a puzzle. So we have two versions in the book of which we show one on the web.
