It may be hard to believe, but - beside of the "Berlin Monument Award" - our modest project has also been awarded with the "European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Award". This prize is considered to be the 'Oscar' of monument protection and the most important accolade for the conversion and conservation of historical sites in Europe. The report from the judging panel says in part: "The Jury was charmed and fascinated by the careful restoration of this small but important house on the 1925 UNESCO world heritage site (...) The restoration was based on intensive research, material evidence, surviving elements, photographs and knowledge of the design principles of its period. A rewarding work of restoration and renewal, it commemorates a highly significant phase in the history of civil architecture. The outcome is a lively and powerful combination of bold colours, reason and form brought together by design. The Jury strongly approved of the project’s power of example to comparable urban settings."
