Itakerhof

Upper Bavaria, Germany

Tension between tradition and modernity

A Bavarian farm always includes a barn. This outbuilding is usually used for the storage of agricultural equipment, as a fodder silo or storage room. At the Itakerhof, not far from the Simssee in Upper Bavaria, the barn stood empty and unused for more than three decades after the farm was abandoned. Rainwater increasingly damaged the 19th-century building fabric of field stones, wooden beams and bricks. In converting the historic building into a modern residential house, the architects were concerned to treat the old building with respect and to carefully complement it with contemporary design. The result? Interesting contrasts of raw brickwork, simple concrete elements and modern luxury. In the bathroom, the BetteLux Oval provides a generous feeling of space. Its shape is naturally flowing and at the same time clear and concise. The overall impression: moving elegance
