A villa dating from around 1900 was converted with utmost sensitivity into a private museum and seminar centre - as a place of remembrance of its former inhabitants and of the company founded by them. The qualities of the old building, which had been lost over time, were revealed again in the course of the extensive construction work, and areas that bear witness to the living culture of the residents were restored to their original state. With newly added items, a further chapter of a family and company history was opened, representing the present and pointing the way into the future.

The entire building has been functionally brought up to the latest technical standards without allowing technology to become a dominant feature. New balcony elements on the access and garden side connect the existing parts of the building to a new holistic entity and include the newly designed garden area in the building's utilization.
