The original design actually envisaged three guest bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen area (consisting of a dining and living room). The reconstruction project was carefully carried out so that the area is sufficient and the interior remains authentic. The imposing arched windows in Gothic style were part of the former building and have been restored. Custom-made window glasses and shutters have been added to complete the overall picture.

The modernized kitchen and dining area is flooded with light because of the numerous windows. The kitchen has modern kitchen accessories such as the hanging shelf for pots and pans and the extractor hood. We are observing a mix of styles: country house style, industrial and modern styles are masterfully combined here.
