Converted Recycled Barn

Frankfurt couple Katharina Pasternak and Martin Schittig demolished a dilapidated structure using many materials salvaged from the old building. Preserving the barn’s dark oak wood beams, gable constructed of handmade bricks, and a pile of tiles from the 1920s, the pair created a modern home. Pursuing the “recycling” theme even further, the couple filled the home with used Nordic furniture, plus a well-worn dining table donated by a local sports halland a bench acquired from a nearby daycare center.
