This listed-status, historic farmhouse, first mentioned in 1560, is still a family-owned property. The architect’s principle when undertaking the painstaking restoration was: “what’s old stays old – and what needs to be renovated or enhanced is systematically redesigned.” The kitchen contains a well-preserved coffered, dark walnut ceiling. The aim was to ensure a classic symbiosis uniting the historic masonry and authentic materials with modern design and contemporary materials, i.e. to create a single harmonious unit.
It was the ideal setting in which to use the bulthaup b2 “kitchen workshop” because these new elements combine authenticity and craftsmanship like no other kitchen. The tool cabinet and the wooden worktop module of the kitchen workbench were chosen to match the walnut coffered ceiling. The kitchen workbench, made primarily from stainless steel, forms a strong contrast. It stands as a pure, individual element in this room and feels both foreign, as well as familiar; an eye-catching object that conjures up a uniquely ethnic, authentic atmosphere.
