LAYERS OF TIME

Concept

The open space reflects the complex superimpositions, the layering of time, in a minimalist way. The rooms have a simple appearance and an appealing ambience. Reduced to the historical sketches, in addition to the other outdoor spaces such as the churchyard, the pastor’s courtyard and flower patio, the prison compound, the monastery cloister and the Wall am Marstallsteg, the former church interior of the previous castle church will be perceivable in a different way.

The ambience is characterised by tranquillity and clarity, conveying the spirit of the location. The reserved design allows space for contemplation and offers a new experience of the passing of time, the wide range of historical utilisations and the way they are superimposed in the vicinity of the castle monastery.

A fascinating composition of interior and exterior spaces was created in close collaboration with Studio Andreas Heller, Architects & Designers.
