A historic farm estate was converted into a training centre for carpenters and restorers run by the Restoration Centre Berlin. Located in the southern part of Berlin, the estate was founded as a plantation in the 18th century. The farmhouse was built on the foundation of a demolished building during the 19th century and was expanded twice later. During GDR times, the building became run down, the barns were demolished and garages were built in the work yards.
The basement of the farm house was dried out, the roof and facades have been refurbished. Along with the restoration of interior wood fixtures, some original wall and ceiling paintings have been exposed and restored.
The demolition of garages allowed the new workshop building to create the original u-shape of buildings around the yard. Rooms for administration and training classrooms are located in the farm house while practical training is held in the workshop building.
