Marxdorf

Works have started for the renovation and conversion of several historic rooms in the large country house from 1853. The spaces which had been renovated in the 60s will be brought back to their original status and building fabric. Insulation will be installed discretely as a new lining on walls and soffits to improve energy efficiency but also to add new architectural elements in order to enhance the character of the interiors.
