Luxembourg House is a residence, designed by architect Richard Meier, that is positioned on a sloped, wooded site in rural Luxembourg. This private house appears as a glass prism equipped with highly distinct spatial sections. The L-shaped dwelling is designed to offer privacy and seclusion along with panoramic views of the beautiful surrounding landscape. The building is covered with opaque sheathing on the south and east sides, protecting it from the street and neighboring buildings.

Luxembourg House comprises a thoughtfully designed interstitial space consisting of a number of terraces that effectively bridge the internal and external space, creating a pleasing visual connection between the structure and its elevation.

The lower level of the property leads to a sloped yard with a sauna and fitness area, with the primary public spaces all located at the ground level.
