THE AURA OF A STRUCTURE

A monument's history is integral in maintaining its special aura. If modern adjustments need to be made, the structure's historic aesthetic quality sets the standard by which the new architectural elements will be measured. Thus, the cooperation with Vermögen und Bau Baden-Württemberg enables the continued preservation of culturally historic properties today and in the future.
