Alexandra and Alexander Hugenberg have recently converted a listed patrician house, Palais Wunderlich in Lahr in the Black Forest.
The municipal mansion was first owned by Carl Wunderlich, a colonial goods merchant and mayor who built this imposing residence in 1798.
The perfect place to unwind, this modern take on the historical mansion, upholds the history and tradition of the building. The comfortable apartments have been individually designed and offer guests a stylish interior with a feel-good factor.
The extraordinary design, with its combination of modern and vintage elements, generates a warm, cosy atmosphere. In keeping with the style of the mansion, washbasins and toilets from the Starck 3 range were fitted in each of the apartments. This bathroom classic, created by designer Philippe Starck for Duravit, harmoniously rounds off the interiors.
The location also features a restaurant, which can be booked for both private and commercial functions offering a range of options for individually planned events. The extensive garden with its terrace is an ideal venue for celebrations, as are the inner courtyard or vaulted cellar. The in-house library with fireplace is the perfect place for a small group to spend a cosy evening.
