In order to prevent it from interfering too much with the original design, the gabled addition meets the roof lines of the original cellar while still maintaining something of its own identity. The interior is marked by an open floor plan, loft space [4] and bold staircases, while daylight reaches the interior via a series of cutouts in the facade and floor to ceiling glass windows.

These windows also frame views of the surrounding landscape. The new structure, which was designed in the local Paarhof style, is a self-contained unit located to the west of the wine cellar. This kind of separation of farm and residential buildings is typical in the region, which demonstrates the great care taken to ensure a respectful renovation [5] that pays credence to its historic legacy.
