A passion for good architecture is in Andy Tugendhat’s genes. The iconic Villa Tugendhat, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the Czech city of Brno, was commissioned by his grandparents. Completed in 1930 and restored in 2012, the home in which Andy’s father lived until he was 5 is now a museum listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Tugendhat and his wife, Karin, drew on that remarkable family history, their own life experiences and a passion for environmentally responsible building to plan their handsome new modern house.
This home just won a Golden Aurora Award for Best in Show from the Southeast Builders Conference for Josh Wynne Construction, Leader Design Studio, SAWA Design Studio, Borden Landscape Design, Latitude 27 and Two Trails, Inc.
