– ALTES PUMPWERK, MANNHEIM NECKARAU –

The neo-gothic brick building was designed by the city
architect Richard Perrey and was built in 1903. When
at the end of the eighties a new sewage plant was set
up, the preservation of this listed building started and
careful conversion into a home and studio was carried
out from the year 2001 onwards.
