In 2006, the company Vitra asked two Swiss architects, Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, to design a building in Germany, to showcase the furniture of their new "Home" collection, and to include a show-room, a restaurant and a shop.

The result was not one building, but ten. Houses with sloping rooves, stacked over four levels. All the houses are different, in their length, width, height, and roof design. Each house was inspired by a traditional house of the region, which was carefully photographed. The building was finished in 2009.
