In Schliersee, Bavaria, the extension of a building dating back to the Middle Ages shows that old and new can be a perfect match.

The Schredl house at the centre of Schliersee dates back to the early 15th century. The building has accommodated the Schliersee Local History Museum for a good 100 years now. When planning the redevelopment of the centre of the village in 2016, the local council chose a usage concept that involved adding a new extension to the historic building. Local architectural firm Johannes Wegmann planned an extension that accommodates a kindergarten on the ground floor and a function room on the top floor. A foyer acts as the link between the old and new parts of the building. Similarly to a gallery, the exposed walls on the inside pay tribute to architecture in times gone by.
