Under the title "art meets living(t)space"!" The property of the metz couple in the lindenstrabe in langenleiten is presented in the brochure of the kreuzberg alliance.
The art couple heike and klaus metz use the former barn of the present, after extensive reconstruction today as a living and exhibition space for their own artworks. The bright and friendly, yet warm and cozy ambience provides the ideal backdrop for effectively showcasing the art they have created in their own homes. The works of art are created in a workshop on the same plot of land. The parents and klaus metz live in the front building, a historic half-timbered house dating from 1912. Thus, the property also fulfills the function of a modern multigenerational house.
The metz couple is also one of the winners of the kreuzbergallianz redevelopment prize. Three particularly successful examples of redevelopment that correspond to the guiding principle of inner development were honored by the kreuzbergallianz. The award winners received prize money and a plaque to display on their building in recognition of the exemplary nature of their presence.
