In the German village of Fergitz in the region of Uckermark, architect Thomas Kröger and team at TKA recently converted a 140-year-old brick-and-timber barn into a family vacation house with a separate guest apartment. “In its time, it was an ultramodern building,” says Kröger, a Berlin star who got his start working for Norman Foster and Max Dudler. Now, the structure is ultramodern once again—while remaining true to its past.
