A HUF house moves: Model house in Mannheim becomes a holiday home in Landau
An entire house is moving? Yes, you heard right! Because HUF HAUS’ sustainable living concept takes into account the entire life cycle of a building, starting with the quality-conscious selection of materials, through production in modern workshops, to the dismantling and reconstruction of the half-timbered house.
In this case we went from Mannheim to Landau for the HUF house ART 3, which was built in 1996 in the German Prefabricated House Center Mannheim. The ebony dream house made of wood and glass served as a model house in the well-attended exhibition for more than 20 years. In 2016, the property was to be rebuilt – this gave the Neuner family the opportunity to purchase the existing building.

“Originally, we wanted to rebuild. We already visited Mannheim several times, because we liked the floor plan of the house so much. When we were told that the show house was up for sale, the decision was clear for us,” reports the Neuner family.
Because the clear half-timbered architecture of HUF HAUS with generous glazing and characteristic skylight level is a timeless classic even after more than 20 years and represents the perfect shell for new and fresh design ideas.
The freshly baked owners followed the dismantling and transport of the house to Landau-Godramtein, 60 km away, with great excitement – their half-timbered house was to be converted into a holiday home.
Arriving on the new property, the elements were reassembled, the ServiceART team provided a fresh coat of paint on the outside and a fresh breeze inside the house. The Neuner family opted for large-format tiles in a modern colour scheme in the bathroom and chose an easy-care and optically sophisticated tile covering instead of carpet on the upper floor.

The former model house, which was renamed “Ferienhaus Lichtblick”, has been shining in new splendour since autumn 2017. Since its opening, the first guests have been able to enjoy the unique ambience of the house and enjoy their holidays in the HUF Haus.
“All previous guests are completely enthusiastic,” enthuses Elke Neuner. The modern holiday home made of wood and glass in the sunny southern Palatinate is a real eye-catcher and can be booked, for example, through dream holiday apartments.
