TÜRALIHUS - Baroque town house with a striking stair tower

History & Information

The Türalihus is one of several stately townhouses in Valendas. The oldest part dates from the 1485th In later phases of construction to the north has been extended, increased and grown a stair tower, which still gives the house its name. The smaller apartment is on the first floor. Against the street side there is a room with floral motifs and a massive tower furnace. The room layout was retained and flooring, paneling, paintings and the ovens have been carefully restored. The kitchen has been updated with modern facilities while retaining the old hearth and also installed a bathroom. The two sleeping chambers are located in the former storerooms behind the house

Responsible for the renovation were the architects Ilanzer Capaul & Blumenthal. It was necessary to preserve the original structure and the unique character of the house: worn stone steps, blackened bodies in the old kitchen, painted paneling and stoves in the rooms still bear witness to the builder time. The restoration work was followed by a strictly conservative approach and can be tagged with "courage to fragment" rewrite. The modern fittings in kitchens and bathrooms and the contemporary furnishing prove how well old and new can be combined

After removal of a crumbling coarse broom throwing plaster from the 20th Jh. Came fragments from five different versions from the period 1465-1775 to the fore, which illustrate the complex construction of this house in an impressive way. Maintaining the juxtaposition of different staggered versions became the guiding principle of the facade restoration carried out between 2010 and 2012

The Türalihus is a monument that has been renovated with great respect for the existing substance. The tenant is aware of and meets the object with care. Furthermore, although technologically equipped contemporary, do not comply with certain functional details now common standards and pose a possible safety hazard. These circumstances are known to the tenant. The owner, e-domizil and the foundation Ferien im Baudenkmal disclaim all liability
