If you were to walk around the neighborhoods of Stuttgart, Germany and run into this 5,252 square foot home, you would surely do a double take. You would also be thinking that this structure is anything but a home.
No, George Lucas did not design this home, but the front entrance with flat concrete panels and a simple but modern doorway is reminiscent of interior doorways and hallways of Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer in the Star Wars films.
Inside this extraordinary structure, the futuristic Star Wars impression continues. Rather than feeling at home, you feel like you’re at a spaceport lounge waiting for your next shuttle to visit Luke Skywalker on the planet of Tatooine.
Not feeling the Star Wars comparisons? Perhaps this commercial grade home feels more like an Apple Store, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as J. Mayer H. Architects clearly wanted to deviate from traditional notions of luxury to advance a new age sense of clean-cut modern living.
The most striking design element of this unique home is a seamless white staircase that bodes an impressive visual aesthetic connecting all three levels of the residence.
The residence is functionally illuminated by its predominant white interior design, but it’s also the perfect balance of windows and carefully constructed skylights that broaden the spectrum of brightness, such as is seen in the master ensuite bathroom, where an oval bathtub sits before the master shower.
