    Default Bauhaus opens its dorms to paying guests

    Bauhaus opens its dorms to paying guests

    News: visitors to the museum at the Dessau campus of the Bauhaus can now spend the night in the dormitories of the former German Modernist design school.
    Guests can book accommodation in the Studio Building once occupied by architecture and design students at the Bauhaus campus in Dessau, Germany, which is now a museum dedicated to the movement.
    Visitors stay in one of the 28 rooms in the building, which were once let to junior masters and promising students.
    Previous inhabitants include Marcel Breuer, Josef Albers, Erich Consemüller, Herbert Bayer, Franz Ehrlich, Walter Peterhans, Hannes Meyer and Joost Schmidt, plus Marianne Brandt, Gertrud Arndt, Gunta Stölzl and Anni Albers on the "ladies floor".
    The 24-square-metre studio flats are starkly decorated and minimally furnished. Boarders have to use the communal bathrooms and showers like the residents in the 1920s would have done.
    One single room has been accurately reconstructed with the original furnishings, while others have been kitted-out with work by their previous occupants.
    Prices start from €35 per night for a single room, while a double room on a Friday or Saturday night costs €60.
    The Bauhaus school was founded by Modernist German architect Walter Gropius in 1919 and was originally located in Weimar.
    The campus was relocated to Dessau in 1925, where the iconic listed building was constructed in the Modernist style. The school was then moved again to Berlin in 1932 before closing down in 1933.

    I used to go their visiting friends who went there. Personally, Bauhaus isn't very appealing to me, but hubby loves it.
    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!
