berge guesthouse in aschau is a remodelled bakery dating back to 1671 which has been renovated by
designer nils holger moormann. the development sits in the countryside of the alps on the border between
germany and austria. moormann has turned the old bakery into 13 newly design apartments which range
from two story living quarters to a ‘sleep cell’ designed for backpackers. the visitors are given minimal
sleeping rooms and encouraged to use a communal space which has a library, kitchen and socializing
area nestled next to a fireplace. while the whole building has been redesigned by moormann, much of its
historic character remains in the massive wood beams and stonework. the project is near completion and
will later receive a sauna and garden.
