Gemminger Hof

Gemminger Hof

Bakelite® and duroplast switch systems


This manorial farmstead consisting of three sections is a listed building. The oldest parts of the structure date from the 13th century, and the most recent are from the second half of the 18th century. The restoration work lasted a decade, with particular emphasis being placed on preserving or reconstructing historic design details, colour schemes and furnishings. This allowed many parts of the buildings to be restored in the original style. However, as the property also comprises modern apartments and a shop, it needed a high level of technical systems and services. Since there were no examples of such design from the construction period, the obvious solution was to choose switches and outlets that hark back to the original era in terms of their materiality and aesthetics.

Location:Bad Wimpfen

Architects:Egger Kolb und Architekten PartGmbB
Details:Historical farmstead consisting of a main building and two outhouses. The ensemble underwent an elaborate restoration that took into account the listed status of the property.

“Gemminger Hof in Bad Wimpfen is a listed ensemble of buildings from the 18th century. The buildings were carefully renovated, restored where possible and converted into apartments. The preservation of historical details was of paramount importance to the owner. The switches and outlet systems made by Thomas Hoof Produktgesellschaft fitted in superbly. Their classic materiality and historical design, combined with their modern function and their durability and high quality, won us over and also met the high standards of the owner. They are also great value for money. The products we selected fit perfectly into the old buildings and help give them the air of yesteryear.”

– Wieland Egger, owner of Egger Kolb Architekten
