We are offering a rare opportunity to purchase a Bauhaus-Villa built by Otto Glaus in 1954, situated in the beautiful low-tax municipality of Heerbrugg. Otto Glaus, a direct disciple of Le Corbusier, one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, was given free rein by his client at the time to design this unique property. Every dimension of the building and the furniture designed by Glaus corresponds precisely to Le Corbusier’s ”Modulor,” creating a harmonious and balanced architectural masterpiece. This attention to dimensional harmony influenced Glaus’s subsequent work.

The villa embodies timeless, modern architectural language with original furniture and was renovated in 2017 to a high standard, preserving its style and attention to detail. The property includes a newly renovated garage for three vehicles and is set on an idyllic plot surrounded by mature trees and shrubs in a family-friendly residential area. The spacious home, designed for both living and working under one roof, offers approximately seven rooms over two floors, totaling about 275 square meters of living space (GFA approximately 439 square meters).

The light-flooded entrance hall features built-in cupboards and a guest toilet. The modern, fully equipped kitchen includes ample storage space and a kitchenette, while the open-plan dining area overlooks the colorful garden. The spacious living room boasts a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glazing with extended room heights. The elegant master bedroom, located in the south wing, includes an en suite bathroom and is adjacent to a guest room with an additional bathroom. The property also includes approximately 10 square meters of office space with built-in cupboards, a cozy lounge (reading room/TV room), a servant’s room with a washbasin, and a separate, elegant office wing. The basement houses a wine cellar, utility room, air-raid shelter, and technical rooms, reflecting a well-thought-out spatial layout.

The well-kept outdoor facilities feature a swimming pool, changing room, and shower. The interior and exterior of the villa showcase a unique color design according to Le Corbusier’s ”Polychromie Architecturale” color system.

This impressive single-family house is located in the heart of a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood at the southwestern end of Heerbrugg. The community boasts excellent infrastructure, making it family-, business-, and tax-friendly. The center, just 550 meters away, offers various shopping facilities, banks, a post office, restaurants, and many other services. The nearby train station and motorway, only four minutes away, provide fast and ecological access to larger urban centers such as Chur, Buchs, St. Gallen, and Zurich. Heerbrugg is situated in the heart of the border triangle between Germany, Austria, and Liechtenstein, with all these countries reachable within a 20-minute drive. You too can benefit from these many advantages.
