At first glance the Refugi Lieptgas designed by Nickisch Sano Walder Architekten looks like a traditional wooden hut. Taking a closer look you will actually find that this cabin is made of concrete. The old barn that stood here previously characterises the appearance of the new building. By using the logs of the block construction as a formwork for the concrete a fossilized version of the old barn has been created. The result is an unusual holiday home for two people – both romantic and modern.
