Comprehensive renovation and adaptation of the historic courtyard building.

The solid appearance of the old farm impresses with its beautiful location in the environment of Schloss Eggenberg. Important in the renovation was not to lose the special charm of the building, but to underline.

The annex on the north side of the old building stands in a deliberate contrast to this, but nevertheless fits sensitively into the ensemble through proportion and formal reduction and complements the old stock with its modern touch. The extension includes the new development as well as sanitary and storage rooms. The expansion is a clearly reduced volume that is positioned lean next to the existing villa.

Due to the new design of the development situation, the courtyard is now entered through an access gate in the new building, which opens up to the garden with room-high glazing. The villa was gutted inside, redesigned, allowing for a spacious, open living over 3 levels.
