Little refuge.
Great concept.

Eine Symbiose 

aus Architektur 

& Natur. 

In the middle of the Westerwald, Nils and Caro Fröhlich created a place where guests need do only one thing: Reconnect with nature – by shutting off their minds, their everyday routines, and especially their smartphones. The “Kleine Bleibe” (“little refuge”) represents innovative building culture, a new and sustainable form of vacation: High-quality and natural materials characterize the extraordinary interior style. An oasis of peace and balance in the middle of nature.

Minimalist designer bathrooms have been created for the purist, clear architecture of the vacation homes, which become one with their surroundings: Uncomplicated, calm and pared down – but with the highest standards of quality and sustainability.

The quiet village of Reckenthal lies in the middle of the untouched Gelbach valley. Half-timbered houses on the national history register characterize the village center. This is where the “Kleine Bleibe,” a complex of various buildings surrounded by nature, is located.

Each of these vacation homes is unique – a modern interpretation paying homage to traditional half-timbered construction. The houses are face-to-face with nature; their height and layout are chosen such that the view from the window always showcases the beauty of the surrounding natural landscape. “Kleine Bleibe” was designed with the priorities of sustainability and environmental protection in mind.

Elemental purity

VALLONE has always been committed to the principles of nature and sustainability when it comes to product development: For this reason, the builders chose sinks and bathtubs made of VELVET STONE bio-based solid surface material for the bathroom fixtures. Nils and Caro Fröhlich opted for the IAO series for an aesthetically clean interior concept that also imbues the bathrooms with the philosophy of the architecture. This series, with its perfectly balanced contours and linear design language, is inspiring and has the flexibility to be placed anywhere in the room, especially with a view out towards nature. The clarity and clean lines of its architecture are also found in the BISCAYNE series, which is where we took the sink from. The QUAD toilet completes the high-quality fixtures, which allow the guests to enjoy the elemental purity of nature.
