This private mansion on the river Neckar is a beautiful example of how different shapes and materials could combine in one interesting and unique project.
Dupli Casa, designed by German J. Mayer H. Architects, is located in Ludwigsburg, Germany. The home looks so futuristic due to its original geometric shapes and white facade. The extraordinary design of the main structure flows into the base and blends harmoniously with the other functional extensions. What is interesting, the architecture of the building is based on the footprint of the previous house, built in 1884 and the new building echoes the “family archaeology” by duplication and rotation. Concrete walls and wooden floors create connection between the modern and the old, the natural and the man-made and the inside and outside. The residence houses tree levels and there are lots of panoramic windows which provide breathtaking snapshots .The skin of the villa performs a sophisticated connection between inside and outside .
