New urban-rural connection: Association redevelops Sommerfrische residence

The ‘Haus Bräutigam’ association is developing a former ‘Sommerfrische’ summer holiday residence in Schwarzburg into a place for short-term living and working after the ‘Zukunftswerkstatt Schwarzatal’ stepped in and saved the building in the centre of the village from demolition. The communally organised project for the resource-efficient reconstruction and conversion of the disused building is intended as a model for similar initiatives in the village, region and beyond.

‘Bräutigam Sommerfrische House’ also represents a new symbiotic urban-rural connection. In addition to acquiring IBA project status, the association has also been granted funding from the ‘Rural Development in Thuringia’ initiative as part of the ‘European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development’. In autumn 2019, work began on gutting earlier alterations and removing the applied facade to expose the house’s original half-timbered appearance.
