The municipal council of a small village bought an old cottage. A community center with a clubhouse and a hall, which is missing today, is set up. Rebuilding counts on preserving the most valuable part of the cottage – the room and vaulted rooms in the middle of the house. The stallion and the barn retreat to the newly built hall, open to the truss. The new and old part of the house will be divided into one unit. The rural character of the building will thus be preserved for future generations as well.
The chalet on a nice large plot is complemented by a masonry hall, which after minor modifications will continue to serve as an economic object. At the site of a demolished masonry, the construction of a cottage with two small apartments is envisaged. They can serve as municipal or holiday homes.
