The smallest house in Germany:
Sustainable clay building materials on only 4 square meters – a unique vacation accommodation
The aim of LDGG – the vacation booking platform “Lass Dir Gut Gehen” – is to make vacations in unusual vacation apartments possible. Another unusual vacation accommodation has now been added in Bremen, the smallest house in Germany – with a floor area of just 4 square meters. The former utility room, with a chicken coop on the roof, has been sustainably renovated from the ground up using ecological building materials and now offers cozy vacation accommodation for up to two people.
Between old timber-framed houses and small stores, right next to the Weser, lies the smallest house in Germany in the middle of the many alleyways in Bremen’s Schnoor district. It took almost three years to complete the refurbishment in accordance with listed building regulations and to make all the furniture so that an entire vacation home could fit into just four square meters. The biggest challenge was to design an extremely practical interior that could accommodate a kitchen, a bathroom with shower, a dining room and a bedroom in just one room. When designing all the accommodation, LDGG places particular emphasis on individual and unique furniture inventions, which can still be purchased on site. In addition to the cozy furnishings, the use of ecological materials rounds off the concept. The aim is to create accommodation that not only offers special overnight accommodation, but also feels a bit like home.
In the smallest house in Germany, the newly built roof truss was first constructed with “Reed matting St 70” and “Clay undercoat plaster with straw”. The “Clay adhesive and reinforcing mortar” was then applied as a reinforcing layer, into which a “Glass mesh” was incorporated. The reinforcement layer ensures the stability of the entire construction. The “Clay topcoat fine 06” was then used as a leveling compound. The walls of the building were also constructed using sustainable clay building materials, just like the ceiling. The wall surface heating embedded in “Clay undercoat plaster with straw” is not only space-saving, but also the ideal choice in combination with clay as a building material. This ensures an excellent indoor climate and guarantees a pleasant temperature. A leveling layer of “Clay topcoat fine 06” was also applied here. The “YOSIMA clay designer plaster” in the color “WE0” was used as a surface finish throughout the house. The clay color plaster is free of dyes and pigments. Clay is both the binder and the colorant for the 146 different shades available.
Visitors can access the rustic roof terrace through the skylight via the specially designed ladder. The cozy spot in the fresh air is another highlight alongside the special interior design. With a shower and a toilet, a specially designed fold-out double bed and a small coffee kitchen, the smallest house in Germany offers everything you need for a relaxing break on 4 square meters.
