Berlin-based studio J. Mayer H. has designed the Dupli Casa project. The 12,800 square foot, three story, contemporary home is located near Ludwigsburg, Germany, and was completed in August 2008.
The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the “family archaeology” by duplication and rotation.
The new design for sure looks impressive.
On the other side, it also looks more like a museum of modern art,
and less as a livable home. Similar to Fallingwater by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
