What Houzz contributors are saying:

Barcode HouseMunich, 2005Another single-family residence in the book (one of the few by the firm, which "sees the single-family home as the worst-case scenario of urban development," as the book notes) is for a couple who sold their successful advertising company in 2004 to spend more time with their "patchwork family of seven," as the book describes it. Aiming for a place with a balance of urban feel and countryside, they bought a large plot of land not far from the center of Munich.From the beginning MVRDV conceptualized their house as a parallel arrangement of barcode-like strips from front to back, hence the name of the house. The garage's dimpled facade fronts the street, providing access to the house via a gate on the side.
