Berlin Architect Thomas Kröger converted this old barn, in Fergitz on the west bank of the lake Oberuckersee, into a holiday apartment for four people and a main house that can also be rented as a holiday home for up to eight people. The rooms are grouped on two levels around the central hall of the barn. Glazed walls provide views to the wooden structure of the hall and a monumental fireplace. When the big barn doors are opened the boundaries between interior and exterior space disappear.
The thick stone walls, small windows upstairs and large wooden doors have been kept almost unchanged from the outside. But inside, the building has been completely gutted and restructured. The entrance area with rough wooden walls and old stone floor awakes associations of the former use of the barn.
The spacious, airy living room downstairs has an impressive ceiling height of seven meters. Through a window opening in one of the two bedrooms upstairs you can look down into the living room. The apartment features a private garden accessible from the kitchen area.
