Am früheren Seilerhansenhof
The holiday home “Am Seilerhansenhof” is situated in an idyllic location amidst the gently rolling hills of the Black Forest. Meadows, pastures and forests surround the property, which also features a small stream running through it. The estate consists of three buildings, all with saddle roofs. The two larger ones are connected to one another, while a slightly removed cottage completes the trio. The house looks simple, almost as if drawn by a child’s hand, but a closer look will reveal surprising details. Thanks to the offset arrangement of the buildings, their slightly sloped position, and the placement of the windows, interesting spatial arrangements across different levels and interesting views, as well as protected exterior areas, have been created.
The approx. 100 square meter house can accommodate up to four people. In the first part of the building there are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a gallery. In the second building, which is located slightly lower, you will find the living area opening up to the roof. The sitting area, dining area and kitchen are placed around the central fireplace. The furniture is mostly custom-made and was designed by the architect himself. The straight-lined, minimalist furnishings and the polished concrete floors in the living room create a modern ambience – far from your typical rustic cottage flair and yet extremely homely!

Having grown up in the southern Black Forest, we got to know our old homeland again. We able to reimagine this holiday home on the site of the former Seilerhansenhof estate. It’s a counterpoint to everyday urban life and a beautiful place to switch off and enjoy the nature.
