Description  Is this a plan designed by Kurt Unger and prepared for building by Kulka? On the drawings however stands Adolf Loos Paris 1930. It is known that Loos was not satisfied by the four werkebund houses Kulka build in Vienna. Two of the houses were finished and furnished under his own name and two under the name of Kulka. This plan seems to be a correction on Vienna or are these the original Stuttgart plans with which Loos wanted to surprise the world? As far as we know these are the only split-level houses Loos ever designed. Spatial consequences are minor and it should not be considered as a alternative for the ‘Raumplan’. In the ‘Raumplan’ as Loos designed it, the several rooms have always spatial connections with each other, and that does not occur here. The advantage of this solution is pure technical: the stairs become shorter while there are rooms on the landing and the floors are easy to span because of the construction walls are omnipresent.
