When the funding application for a meeting, visitor and experience centre for the Alte Vogtei was finally submitted to the district government in Arnsberg in April 2017, no one had any idea that this project would take so long. "Originally we assumed that we would be able to open the Alte Vogtei as part of our 800th anniversary celebrations in Burbach," says Ewers in response to Gürke's question. But it quickly became clear that this was not feasible, because in addition to the important investigations by the preservationists, the regulations to be observed in such a project, such as the Europe-wide invitations to tender, are of course much more time-consuming than initially assumed.
As the building owner, Ewers explains that since receiving the building permit last October, the detailed planning has continued to progress and further tenders are currently being prepared. This also includes the exhibition concept, in which the local history society, in cooperation with the municipality, is being supported by the office BOK + Gärtner GmbH from Münster. The exhibition concept just mentioned was visualised and presented by Loomn as a professional agency for architectural visualisations. This created the opportunity to view and concretely plan the premises even before implementation.
The "house within the house" is highlighted and impressively presented through photo-realistic 3D images. By integrating people into the visualisations, the exhibition could be brought to life. In addition, the images thus offer a realistic picture of how the Alte Vogtei will look in the future. Likewise, the use of light played a major role in the visualisations.
"It will no longer be a typical local history museum in the future, as we would not have received funding of 3.11 million euros for it either," Gürke explains about the plans for the exhibition. Special exhibits from the previous exhibition "Life and Work in Burbach" would certainly find a place again - if necessary, also temporarily in special exhibitions.
In contrast to the previous exhibition, the four sections of the future exhibition "ZusammenKommen", "ZusammenArbeiten", "ZusammenLeben" and "ZusammenWachsen" will cover a much larger period of time. In the Zehntscheune, there will also be a house-in-house construction in addition to the workshop area, as the building will not be fully insulated and insulated. Quotes and statements about Burbach(-er) are still being sought for this, which will be read on the outside of the (semi-)transparent building. The sub-project of the construction, a new bakehouse on the grounds of the old bailiwick, will start in the next few days, weather permitting. Rüdiger Sahm from the local history society will present the plans.
"In addition to additional storage space for the local history society, the new bakehouse will above all offer more room to work better with groups, especially school classes, in the future," says Sahm. Sahm informs us. In addition to this future offer of an extracurricular place of learning and the exhibition under the motto "Together Burbach", the new Old Bailiwick will of course also house the tourist information office of the municipality of Burbach. There will also be other event rooms, a café and a souvenir and ticket shop. As the future nature park gateway for the Sauerland Rothaargebirge Nature Park, there will also be a special section for this in the rooms of the Vogtei. In this context, the Vogtei will also become a central location for nature park events, both indoor and outdoor.
