The residential area of Weimar´s South town is popular due to its exposed and quiet location on the edge of the Ilm Park and its attractive villas. The abundance of nature, old tree populations, and the picturesque savoir-vivre of the Bauhaus University soften the image of this area which is otherwise seen as upmarket. The aim was to create attractive and exclusive rental housing in this location, which integrated into the existing late nineteenth century villas and conformed to these challenging surroundings. Modern living in an historical context has always been a fascinating subject. Our successful interpretation of these fin de siècle (late 19th century) villas that were so exclusive in their time - was achieved through attention to detail and the creation of housing that is modern in its interior layout and luxuriously equipped.
