Sleek Bauhaus Modernist Home in Atlanta

Photo by: Zillow The staircase is a prime example of this Atlanta home’s Bauhaus modernist style. A glass catwalk connects rooms while adding a futuristic touch to the second-floor landing of this 4,800-square-foot, 6-bedroom home.

Founded by German architect Walter Gropius – widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture – the Bauhaus modernist home style is known for its functional design and cubic shape with four flat sides and a flat roof. Today, we're touring a prime example of Bauhaus architecture in the heart of Atlanta.

Set on coveted Elmwood drive near the Atlanta Beltline, this stunning mod residence overlooks Piedmont Park and the midtown skyline. With the flip of a switch, retractable glass walls in the living room and master bedroom slide open to connect the home with its urban surroundings. Other sleek details – from the concrete countertops in the kitchen to the glass catwalk on the second floor – enhance the home's Bauhaus appeal.

Outside, you can escape the "Hotlanta" heat by taking a dip in the glass-bottom swimming pool. The home also comes with a rooftop sundeck and a terrace for outdoor entertaining.
