This house of cobbler farmers built in the 18th century in Alt-Riem near Munich. Almost entirely forfeited and a historic monument, it is acquired by Stefan F. Höglmaier in 2013. He even took on the challenging transformation of this historic farmhouse and created a pioneering example in dealing with monuments. In cooperation with the architect Peter Haimerl, the house was transformed into a two-family house.
The architectural concept is based on two premises.
Preservation of historic buildings and at the same time introducing a spatial innovation. Therefore, a 45 degree rotated, inserted in the roof cube made of concrete, is based on the geometry of structures and extends over the entire length of the building. Within this set at an angle cube, there is an ultra-modern unit in the former stables of the estate. Outside the cube, there is a second unit that receives the Past as far as possible and can be felt closely linked to the inventory.
