Fans of Germany’s most famous design school – the Bauhaus – can now stay in former student lodgings, in the city of Dessau-Roßlau.

The renovated building, completed in 1926, comprises 20 separate, basic flats, with communal showers and restrooms throughout the hallway – in keeping with the movement’s functional and minimalist style.

According to the Bauhaus website, some rooms have been redesigned to reflect the personalities of former inhabitants, such as architect Alfred Arndt and artist Joseph Albers – whose famed color theory book, Interaction of Color, recently formed the basis for our Futurist: Strategy of Color report . Check out the website for more details, including room fees starting from as little as 35 Euros.

You can read more about the school, and this important design movement in our review of the Bauhaus: Art as Life exhibition at the Barbican, which took place early last year. –  Samantha Fox
