The transformation of this farm will give mentally disabled persons a new place with home care. The farm lost its agricultural function years ago, but the appearance still belonged to the village. The search for a new function lead to an new role for the old farm. Without disturbing the characteristic features, the transformation only took place within the contour of the farm. New windows in the roof and façade generate more daylight. The windows form a clean and consistent rhythm with the existing barn lights.
The new program consists of 12 apartments together with a few supporting rooms. The apartments are distributed over two stories, with the main rooms on the ground floor. The existing front-house remained intact and is restored.
The historic appearance and details serve as model for the implementation of the new function. Only the new windows betray the new apartments inside.
