Meisterzimmer

Leipzig, Sachsen, Germany

A mix of industrial architecture and modern, individual furnishings can be enjoyed in the Leipzig master room. The former buildings of the cotton mill founded in 1884 have been preserved almost unchanged. Today the buildings are filled with creativity, art and new ideas, as well as from smaller companies such as the master room.

The rooms of the master room itself have given a feeling of freedom in a large room and through high walls since the opening in 2008. Through the huge factory windows on one side the spinning yard and on the other side beautiful Wilhelminian style buildings and chestnut trees can be discovered. The special atmosphere of the master room runs through all four rooms, which are similar in type and yet very different. What they all have in common are the objects and furniture from a former production that have been extensively restored or rebuilt.

A highlight is a row of wash basins from the spinning mill, which makes it possible to recreate the history of the room. In addition to the spaciousness of the rooms, cozy niches and sitting areas were also created. During the summer there is an open-air cinema and a café with a pretty garden in the Spinnerei-Hof.

Sustainable

ArchitectureThe buildings are over 130 years old and continue to thrive on sustainable construction. The thick walls were insulated with cork, which still provides good insulation. The box windows also date from the Wilhelminian period. The renovation of the rooms took place in collaboration with local craftsmen, much was also done in-house. The choice of building materials is always made with sustainability in mind: The renovated floors are made of sisal, real linoleum or wooden floorboards.

The employees work on a trust basis and are allowed to organize themselves and organize their work.

EnvironmentMost of the furniture was specially made from untreated wood or blockboard, others come from our own stock and have been refurbished or rebuilt. In this way, the furniture in the master room tells its very own stories and enables the materials to be preserved for a long time. The roofs of the former factory are mostly planted, which ensures natural air conditioning and insulation. There are also ideas for using solar power.
