Fashion designer Irina Rohpeter and building engineer Nils Kistner have fulfilled their dream of building their own holiday house in the countryside. The result: the Knütthuus. They designed the house as a place to make connections. The Low German name doubles as the property’s motto: “knütten” means both knotting and knitting. The Knütthuus is a place where holidaymakers can come together. Local designers also display their products and artworks here. A striking yellow net made of ropes and an open spatial concept define the design theme.
