Contemporary MIKI 1 House, Germany
From street view, the north facade, which is composed of cubes and wall slabs, appears largely solid, and gives the impression of a detached villa. However, two separate villas were built behind the shared facade, whose different floor plans correspond to the needs and lifestyles of the owners. While the villas have almost the same amount of floor space, the western half of the duplex has a multi-room plan suitable for a family, whereas the eastern half was designed with an open, flowing room concept.
The spacious two-storey room on the ground floor was designed with a detached concrete kitchen counter and a dining table, whose concrete base supports a seemingly hovering timber tabletop, which is illuminated from below. The living area, the lounge zone and the work-space on the gallery are flooded with light entering through the glass facade on the south side. In the evening, indoor lights play on the glass facade, blending with reflections of the city, the landscape and the pool. Images courtesy of Alexander Brenner Architects.
