Concrete, felt and a pile of dung | ‘Verweile doch!’ (Stay a while!)
Among details we love this week, this is holding a special place in our hearts and concrete eyes. Spotted on Ignant.
This is a design story of how German Architect Peter Haimerl converted a Cobbler farmhouse dating back to 1705, which had been empty for the last 30 years, into a dynamic space which amplifies historical features, seemingly absent.
While the exterior of the house stayed untouched, the internal space, which had been gutted, provided the groundbreaking studio the perfect playground to create an avant guard space where prisms meets false ceilings, with an interesting choice of materials.
Peter Haimerl also creatd a dung motif, to symbolize the intrinsic prosperity by the pile, in a farm setting.
Definitely a property to Stay a while in.
