History & Historic Preservation


The property was commissioned by an industrialist and was probably completed in the early 1920s as a factory owner‘s villa in a very representative style.

After the Second World War, the villa with its stately rooms was used as an officers‘ mess for the British Army of the Rhine.

The Officers‘ Mess served as an event venue for the officers of the British armed forces both during the week and at weekends. The officers held receptions and celebrations in the prestigious rooms and on the terrace.

They belonged to the REME (Royal Electric and Mechanic Engineer), a base workshop of the British armed forces in which mainly tanks were repaired and maintained.

Visitors from Great Britain stayed overnight on the upper floors. The villa always served as a social centre.

Not until the withdrawal of the British Rhine Army did the property return to private ownership and, after several transfers of ownership, was most recently used by private investors as an exclusive hotel with an event location.

The quality of the design, the order in measurement and function as well as the appearance of the villa as a contemporary witness of a 1920s mindset prompted the registration of the listed building, encompassing the interior and exterior of the building, in the 1990s.

Accordingly, the terrace complex was also planned as part of a reconstruction in accordance with the requirements of a listed building, but in consultation with the Westphalian Office for the Preservation of Historical Monuments, realised in a manner that was more in keeping with the spirit of the times.
