LIVING WITHIN HISTORICAL WALLS

Protected historical buildings must be treated with a lot of sensitivity and respect: the history and the location both play a decisive role. Architects from the Coast office accepted this challenge. Looking for new premises for their Stuttgart office, Zlatko Antolovic and Alexander Wendlik found a 17th-century barn in Waiblingen that had been empty for years.

Protected historical buildings must be treated with a lot of sensitivity and respect: the history and the location both play a decisive role. Architects from the Coast office accepted this challenge. Looking for new premises for their Stuttgart office, Zlatko Antolovic and Alexander Wendlik found a 17th-century barn in Waiblingen that had been empty for years.

Great care and attention went into creating this residential and office building. The 6-storey half-timbered building is special not only because of the historical city wall that partially acts as an external load-bearing wall for the building, but also because of the steep 55-degree gable roof. The first two floors are used as office space. Black steel stairs along the city wall and the wall-walk lead you to a new flat for the Antolovic family. With four floors and some 150 square metres, this historical 300-year-old barn is home to impressive spaces. Natural materials, black-varnished steel elements and warm colours dominate the interiors. White walls blend in with the light Cleverpark Oak Farina parquet. The long planks without bevels create a spacious look and an open living and dining area, as well as provide the children’s rooms with a cosy and calm atmosphere. In addition, the parquet floor is improved with the B-Protect® surface treatment. The innovative B-Protect® coating comprises multiple layers of invisible lacquer, completely sealing the surface of the parquet. A loving attention to details, like the gently cleaned and untreated ceiling beams, or the delicately integrated city wall, are a reminder of days gone by, creating a unique ensemble of old and new when combined with new modern elements.
