An inconspicuous warehouse building of the WLZ (Württembergisch-Landwirtschaftliche Zentralgenossenschaft) from the 1950s. The rooms in the basement were covered with coal dust from floor to ceiling. Ideal conditions to make a bathroom out of it. The former coal storage room and the chutes through which the coal landed one floor below are transformed into a first-class feel-good temple. Nothing is missing in the bathroom, the sauna adjacent helps you to relax and also heats up on particularly cold days.
The continuous floor covering made of a synthetic resin filler with a layer thickness of only two millimeters can also be adjusted in color in countless variations. As a finish, the floor got a glossy lacquer surface.
Lime plastering technology
The generously dimensioned shower can be accessed easily and barrier-free. The material of the floor and the steps continues into the shower area, while the toilet and bathtub are raised by two steps, almost like on a throne. The toilet is also highlighted by the design of the rear wall with a glazed lime plaster technique. The "barn finds" of the house also include a frequently used workbench, which is being used as a washstand. Upcycling of a very special kind: robust and elegant. Today the former coal cellar is a room with almost magical radiance.

What are energy sources?Substances in nature or those that are manufactured chemically can be differentiated based on certain criteria. Different properties can also be derived from the material with regard to energy sources. For example:the amount of energythe concentrationtheir storage and transportability
