Tour around this must-see architectural masterpiece right on you smart device in real-time, whilst helping preserve it via adverts and sponsorship, for future generations.

Completed in 1930, the Villa Tugendhat was the worlds first residential building to be based on a steel structure and is an icon of modern architecture. A worthy UNESCO world heritage site, in 2010-2012 it underwent an $8m reconstruction and this 3D interactive visualisation faithfully re-creates its present state.

This officially sanctioned visualisation in collaboration with the Museum of Brno, is the result of 1000s of hours modelling and optimisation work based off many hundreds of real photos and other reference material. Highly optimised, it runs fluidly and beautifully on a wide range of smart devices at high resolutions even though the adverts in this free version result in a slightly higher demand on your devices graphics processor. Real sounds from the villa such as doors opening are embedded.

After admob fees, 50% of advertising income will go to support the villa and a further 20% will go to improve the interactivity and breadth of the visualisation. Currently only rooms inside of the building can be explored, but you can look out into the garden, help us to deliver a more engaging experience by supporting our revenue streams.

If the free version works on your device, so will the paid for pro version. The pro version allows you too see more rooms on the upper floor as well as the main living spaces downstairs and activate the famously massive floor to ceiling glass windows in front of the lounge and dining areas.

Please note, if you are running on a device with only 1GB of RAM please close all other applications as the visualisation requires nearly 1GB.
