Appreciation of local everyday architecture has grown in the Palatinate. Apart from historical monuments, particularly neglected, forgotten buildings, which would formerly have been demolished or “renovated” beyond recognition, are preserved and appreciated today, not only for the sake of sustainability. In their second life, they are often used as cultural venues or holiday apartments, allowing everyone to benefit from them. (144 pages)

Preservation of local building culture in the Palatinate

Apart from being known for wine and classical music, the Palatinate is increasingly characterised by an appreciation of its everyday architecture. While including historical monuments, this often extends to neglected, forgotten buildings that would formerly have either been demolished or “renovated” beyond recognition. Now the building fabric is preserved and appreciated for the sake of sustainability and regional identity. Rather than being located in faceless outskirts, these buildings often have the prime advantage of a central location in a gradually developed urban landscape. Following modernisation without any false attributes to achieve cosiness, they are often used as cultural venues or holiday apartments in their second life, allowing everyone to benefit from them.
