Cour­ty­ard
courtyard from above

The cour­ty­ard has two levels. The upper level, thanks to its flo­or cons­truc­tion, allo­ws day­light to enter the lower part. Various plants enrich the ter­race. The patio is cover­ed with a foil that can be rol­led up. The­r­e­fo­re, in win­ter, the tem­pe­ra­tu­re rare­ly drops below zero.

Common room oven and kitchen

The fur­nace forms the cen­ter of the com­mon room and thus divi­des the room into kitchen/dining area and living room/sewing cor­ner. The kit­chen is ful­ly equip­ped, also for coo­king lar­ger quan­ti­ties. In the living room is a day­bed, a couch and a pia­no. In the near­by cor­ner is a sewing machi­ne and a basic sel­ec­tion of threads and fabrics.

Gran­ge

The Gran­ge is ide­al for per­for­ma­ti­ve art, lar­ge instal­la­ti­ons or exhi­bi­ti­ons. The three levels crea­te spe­cial spaces that allow for new per­spec­ti­ves. The space is insu­la­ted but can­not be heated.

trek­king in the near­by woods

The near­by forests are loca­ted in the natu­re reser­ve «Parc natu­rel régio­nal des Bal­lons des Vos­ges». Here, man hard­ly inter­ven­es and the forest is lar­ge­ly left to its own. The wild trees over­grown with moss sur­roun­ded by count­less small lakes of the «Pla­teau des Mil­le Étangs» lea­ves a mysti­cal impression.
