Back to Basics: Old Parsonage Converted into a Vacation House

Back to Basics Old Parsonage Converted into a Vacation House (1)

Architect Peter Grundmann together with Marieken Verheyen and Martin Hansen have transformed a former parsonage and its annexes in a beautiful holiday village.

“ Back to basics ” is the motto at Re:hof Rutenberg. The Dutch artist couple Martin Hansen and Marieken Verheyen offers simple but comfortable country vacation in a former parsonage in the Uckermark. With a small budget but even more creativity, passion and aesthetic experience they have transformed the dilapidated farmyard into a unique holiday village. There are various apartments or homes: In the hayloft of the ancient stable three loft apartments with high ceilings and mud-plastered walls have been created. In the former parsonage there is a modern-romantic apartment and in the farm building at the orchard a wheelchair-accessible apartment (completion summer 2016).

At the back of the garden there are three special architects pavilions: garden house Salix with glass cubes and translucent south facade, the houses Lupulus and Spinosa (completion in spring 2016) with a facade of black charred boards and panoramic windows.

The fruit and vegetable garden, the sauna as well as several terraces and fireplaces are available to all guests; besides there is a farm shop. The large barn serves as “hotel lounge”. The multifunctional room can be booked for courses, events or celebrations. It is also a nice place for wedding parties, because the old village church is right next door.
Note: Garden house Salix designed by architect Peter Grundmann is shown at the Architecture Biennale 2016 in Venice. Via Urlaubsarchitektur
