As the purpose of the VitraHaus is to display home furnishings, the architects of the VitraHaus, Herzog & de Meuron, took up the idea of the “archetypal house”, as the proportions and dimensions of the rooms bring to mind residential space that is familiar to us – the architects use the term “domestic scale”.
