Living boxes Ratschen
The opening of the gourmet restaurant Wachter-Wiesler’s Ratschen in 2007 and the scarce supply of beds in the region around Deutsch Schützen have led five winemakers to initiate the construction of Ratschen`s Wohnothek. A hotel directly on the vineyard, consisting of ten small units, which embeds well into the landscape. Inside everything made of wood.
Timber construction has shortened the construction phase massively: From the beginning of the installation of the residential boxes on June 15, 2011 until the completion on August 9, 2011, only 100 days have passed. A total of 175 cubic meters of wood are processed in Ratschen’s Wohnothek.
