This extraordinary refuge situated in the heart of Hunsrück reveals a modern design, even though the monastery is present at every angle: “Keeping the presence of the abbot physically palpable” was the basis for the holistic design of the hotel. Even though modernization has been extensive, the expectations guests have in a monastery must always be met –
a split only made possible by a very selective use of materials and extremely sensitive planning of the geometry of the buildings. However, the decisive attitude towards the dense monastery atmosphere was the clearly detailed planning of the light, setting highlights through lights and shadows. The strong emotional commitment was worth it. The guests are thrilled and the hotel is well-frequented despite its remote location.
