Modern Lines in Old Times: Stairwells
The new location is centrally located, well lit, and -dare I say- beautiful. The building is at least a century old, if not more, and has lots of lovely architectural details. The stairwell is my favorite place. The patterns in the balusters are simple, classic, and oooold. Yet I could easily see this being recreated in a modern home or building. I love the gleaming, worn wood and fresh white paint that glows thanks to all the natural light pouring in through the windows. From the windows you can watch children play outside happily at a neighboring day care facility (kita). Germany's oldest gothic church is nearby and its bells peal as class starts. SUCH a pleasant change!
