The tobacco barn on the edge of Neibsheim – a village near Karlsruhe – is visible from afar. Once tobacco leaves, threaded on long strings, were dried behind the wooden lamella facade. The building with imposing dimensions (40 meters long, 8 meters wide and 4 stories high) stood empty for a long time until the architect Florian Blümig saved it from demolition. He integrated two residential units into the building while preserving its airy character.
An orange gate leads into a huge hall which extends over two floors. Open staircases, old running boards and wooden rods give an impression of the barns former usage. On the second and third floor there are two maisonettes hanging under the roof like wasp nests – with one meter distance to the facade. One of the apartments is rented as holiday home for up to 4 people: On the lower level there is an open living room with a kitchen and dining area; the two bedrooms are on the upper level. The balcony resembles a viewing

Why we like this house

The Tobacco Barn is a building that appeals to the senses: You can hear how the house groans and creaks. Depending on the sun and the positions of the slats the play of light changes and creates different moods.
Exciting architecture that makes decorations almost superfluous.
