Berlin-based studio J. Mayer H. has designed the Dupli Casa project.
Completed in August 2008, this 12,800 square foot, three-story, contemporary home is located near Ludwigsburg, a city in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
Dupli Casa by J. Mayer H.:
“The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 with many extensions and modifications, the new building echoes the “family archaeology” by duplication and rotation.
The skin of the villa performs a sophisticated connection between inside and outside. Lifted, it creates a semi-public ground-level space between two layers of discretion. It offers spectacular views onto the old town of Marbach and the German national literature archive on the other side of the Neckar valley.”
