During the time he is not using the studio, it can be rented.

Zum Egle 1336

Concrete and the Middle Ages! Zum Egle 1336 is a B&B with two rooms in the historic old town of Constance. Opening up instead of covering up was the maxim of the building’s renovation. Traces of the past were meticulously uncovered and put on display. For example, the raw walls of the two guest rooms show remains of old floral wallpaper and medieval murals with images of saints and banners.
