It doesn’t happen very often that a municipality wants to renovate a castle together with an owner. But in kups this is the case. Originally, a woman from munich, who works in berlin, wanted to build a "house" halay between the two cities to be able to meet with the family there. With the "upper castle in kups it has now become sound. And this it wants to redevelop now in co-operation with the municipality.
Oliver reib of the stettfeld engineering firm muller presented the plans at the market town council meeting on tuesday evening. According to this, the owner will renovate and occupy the main building. The municipality will in turn develop the attached commercial building with shelter, the so-called remise, into a small museum. Reib pointed out that some of the beams in the castle date back to the time before the thirty years’ war.
New staircase and elevator
It is planned to install a new staircase and an elevator at the coach house. Reib spoke about the fact that the remise had also served as a horse stable in the past. The still existing fixtures are to be removed. He also spoke of the different floor heights on the upper floor, which need to be adjusted. In addition, the existing columns in the aubenbereich should be exposed. The project is to be demanded as part of the urban development project.
