The Högg house , Marienstraße 12a, is located in the original Radebeul district of the Saxon town of the same name . The villa, which is now a listed building , is named after its builder and first resident, the architect Emil Högg .
Shortly after his appointment to the chair for spatial art and engineering at the Technical University of Dresden , Högg built his own house in Radebeul in 1912. The building application was issued at the beginning of April, and Högg moved into his house at the end of September.
Högg designed the country house, which was built in the strict homeland security style, "with a certain reference to Goethe's garden house in the Ilm-Aue in Weimar" . A two-story, undivided plastered building with a tiled hipped roof rises above an almost square floor plan . The entrance to the south is a round arched door with a curved roof and a figural keystone. On the right side facade there is a central risalit , the upper floor jumps back on both sides of the risalit and thus forms two arbors , one of which has a pergola .
