This building is designed by J. Mayer H. Architects. The geometry of the building echoes the footprint of the original house that was built in 1984 with many extensions and modifications since then.
Lifted up, it creates a semi-public space on ground level between two layers of discretion. The skin of the villa performs a sophisticated connection between inside and outside and offers spectacular views onto the old town of Marbach in Germany.
