Bremen. Böttcherstrasse

Atlantis House
The Atlantis House (German: Haus Atlantis) on Böttcherstraße in the old town of Bremen is an interesting example of German architecture in the interwar period. Designed by Bernhard Hoetger, it was completed in 1931. After suffering serious war damage, it was rebuilt in 1965 with a new facade designed by Ewald Mataré.The building was the second designed by Bernhardt Hoetger (1929–31) for Böttcherstrasse on the basis of ideas from Ludwig Roselius, the prosperous COFFEE entrepreneur, and Herman Wirth, an ethnographer specializing in German ancestral heritage. Roselius was impressed by Wirth's belief that Atlantis, now sunk in the North Sea, was originally inhabited by Germanics who took their culture and civilization to Egypt and Mesopotamia, making the Germans the oldest race on earth.

This is an amazing brickwork structure. So cool how bricks can be used to create such a fabulous design. V
