The de Jaager House in Dornach was designed by Rudolf Steiner on behalf of Isabella de Jaager, the widow of the Dutch sculptor Jacques de Jaager, who died young in 1916. It was built for his artistic estate in 1920/21. The rich carving of the interior of the house was designed by Jacques de Jaager's colleagues and can be seen as a tribute to the artist. Jacques de Jaager himself worked on the carvings of the first Goetheanum building until his death in 1916. In the artistic execution of the interior design and in its combination as a residence and exhibition studio, the de Jaager House combines architecture and craftsmanship to create a total work of art. Changes and restorations require a responsible approach on the part of the residents, craftsmen and architects in order to meet different needs and to preserve the artistic building.
