House Herrmann 1953
little bit of history to start with:
My grandparents built the main house,
at that time "House Herrmann", as one of the first thatched roof
houses in Rantum in the 30ies with the idea to spend their vaccations
here. At that time, there was no electrical power, but candle light
and kerosene lamps, stove heating instead of central gas heating
and aircondition, well water instead of public water supply. Over
the years supply of electrical power, water and sanitary installations
In 1953 my grandfather built a little extension to this
house in order to enable familiy members to spend their holiday
here as well and to offer it to tourists. All familiy members helped
to improve the standard over the decades. 45 years later, in 1998,
we have completely rebuilt and renovated this little thatched roof
house, put all waterpipes and electric wiring under the plaster.
We have luxuriously styled
living- and bedroom and installed a kitchenette with all modern
kitchen euipment including dishwasher and microwave. Even an aircondition
has been connected, which is supposed to help keep a cool head during
the hot season.
We have restored
the timber frame construction of ceiling and roof. The bathroom
has been perfected with top quality fittings and sanitary ceramics.
The marble for floor and walls we have chosen for you at site in
Carrara and forwarded to Rantum.
It was particularly difficult to fing
the adequate illumination for this little house, which on the one
hand was supposed have a plain and clear design and on the otherhand
provide a good lightning conditions.
My wife has designed the
color composition for the interior design. Her target was to achieve
a stylish composition of all materials, which reflects in the living-
an bedroom. Cupboards, parquet flooring, folding
doors and all other wooden equipment are made of light color, cosy
maple wood. Kitchenette and bath can be closed by maple folding
doors. A red Alcantara studio couch is the paint swab in the living
room, inviting for relaxation.The walls in the livingroom are painted
in a warm, sunny yellow color shade and the windows are framed by
yellow curtains. Red bed-linen
will guarantee a relaxing, good night sleep.
