The parsonage was built contemporaneously with the late Gothic church in Prettau and was subsequently operated as a farm, with stable and barn. It was to undergo a conversion into a private house. Special sensitivity was required in the conversion due to the restrictions related to it being a heritage-listed building. The architects managed to clearly identify the historical building’s structure yet simultaneously reflect our contemporary era through the spare use of modern details. This is especially true for the newly timbered barn: it was elegantly redesigned for residential purposes, with an open fireplace, skylights and untreated wood floors, it yet retained its old atmosphere despite this repurposing. In the old building both the stairs and the brick arches in the cellar were conserved, as was the sooty former Selchkuchl (smokehouse), which took on a new function as a work space.
