„Less is more“ stands for the minimalism in architecture that was characteristic for Mies van der Rohe’s designs. Particularly his Barcelona Pavilion was style-defining for modern architecture – and still is today. Therefore, it also served as an inspiration for the project Linea Nera, the first project by Reimann Architecture, which was holistically based on the principle of building from the inside out and follows the guiding principle „less is more“. The open floor plan of the house allows visual axes between the interior and exterior. Following the example of van der Rohe, the reinforced concrete roof rests on chromed columns.
Wall elements such as enamelled glass sliding doors by Rimadesio and walls made of natural stone Ceppo di Gré do not form enclosed spaces. Rather, their use creates a flowing transition that enables spatial relationships and visual axes between inside and outside. This open floor plan creates areas that merge into one another with a function so that there are no unused traffic areas.
