Description Change this

The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was locatedon the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the „family archeology“ by duplication and rotation. 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 specacular views onto the old town of Marbach and the German national literature archive on the other side of the Neckar valley.
