The Graber Hof in Aicha near Schabs has been run by the Neumair family for many generations. Stone fruit thrives in the fields in the highest quality. In addition, the young farmers are testing many new varieties that are not yet native to Aicha. The architect was commissioned to build a new farmhouse that fits seamlessly into the landscape.
The new building picks up on the historic building typology of the village and also forms the entrance to the “Oberdorf”. A new courtyard is accessed via the municipal road. The project also includes an old barn wall, which closes the building towards the entrance to the courtyard. The stone facade facing the north gives the project a special recognition value, while the south facade was developed from a standardized lime plaster and specially processed. The shape of the building derives from the functional arrangement of the interiors, the topographical parameters, the exposure and the orientation towards the sun. Westward, the floor plan was rejuvenated, and the new terrace creates living quality for the living spaces behind.

Customized details and component developments gave the farmhouse a special character. The use of raw materials in the sense of traditional consciousness for the local building culture was combined with the claim of the builders for maintenance-free materials. Inside the house, the floor has already told a story about processing, grinding, smoothing and filling. The reinforced concrete ceiling, the walls and doors were unified by a chalk white finishing, while the solid wood furniture creates a desired, warm and cozy atmosphere.
