As part of the planned refurbishment of the single-family house, the opportunity was used to reconsider the existing floor plan layout and to carry out some selective structural interventions, which break the rigour of the chamber-like floor plan of the late 1920s.

The garden floor, which was formerly home to the utility premises, is being redesigned and now serves as a living space with a fireplace and a summer kitchen. On the ground floor, which can be understood as the actual noble level, the representative social spaces are arranged. The rather small-sized rooms are nobilitated by a very high-quality and opulently tending surface design. Natural stone cladding is added as a new element and complements the high-quality, partly still original carpentry and oak parquet floors.

The curved staircase of natural oak leads up to the bedroom, which is newly organized as an en-suite bedroom with dressing room and bathroom over the entire floor. The attic remains largely unchanged and offers space for children’s and guest rooms.
