“Vacation means: turning off” Your mind. Your everyday life. And also your smartphone. In our modern and hectic society, it’s hard to find a place to relax. Distractions are everywhere, that's why the KLEINE BLEIBE was created: a place you can find peace. Where you can rest and recharge. The Kleine Bleibe is a place for a remote vacation. Far from stress and digital stimulus.
The minimalistic cabins are offering total relaxation. No television. No phone. And for those who want to go all the way, no internet connection. Surrounded by nature - made by nature. Our roots are deeply connected to nature. There is no other place where we feel as connected to ourselves. This is the feeling we have embodied in our cabins too. The KLEINE BLEIBE is made from pinewood and so it is a sustainable place merging with the nature it sits within. You can experience life in its purest form in these surroundings: simple and narrow down to the essentials.
Architecture. Tradition meets philosophy. The KLEINE BLEIBE is an ensemble of three houses: two cabins and a sauna. Each one of these is unique. The philosophy they stand for and the local surroundings are found in the architecture. Comprised with well thought-out details and made with passion. Tradition. Historical timber frame houses are in keeping with the character of the immediate surrounding. The solid foundation and the black wooden facade are a homage to traditional architecture and imbed the KLEINE BLEIBE into the neighborhood while remaining proudly distinct.
Philosophy. The core idea of the KLEINE BLEIBE is to vacation in a simple and sustainable way. This ideology is strengthened by the timeless and personal architectural expression of the cabins: thought-out but clean details, high-quality materials, and a minimalistic look represent what you can find inside: serenity and harmony. Face-to-face with nature. To maximize the beautiful views, the height and positions of the cabins are well balanced so that you can always see the stunning landscape.
Environment protection. Beautiful old trees line the area around the cabins, which were carefully placed so that the plum and walnut trees were not compromised. Robust and sustainable manufacturing. The cabins were built to be robust as well as sustainable. Walls, ceilings, and roofs are made of cross-laminated timber. Inside, you will find solid wood floorboards, polished screed, and water-resistant tiles. Outside all paths, terraces and parking spaces can drain. In dialogue with nature. Window openings let the inside and the outside become one. In keeping with the traditional architecture culture, the houses have a roof overhang.
