Building B. Impressive, inside and out
The beautiful entrance with a glass facade reaching to the roof is the calling card of Building B. But it doesn’t end there. Inside you will be equally surprised by some architectural innovations that will definitely heighten the quality of your stay.
The terrace and glass extension of the dining area surrounded by green
The large seminar room (125m2) has a curved glass extension providing incoming light, a sense of space and a beautiful view of the surrounding nature. Extensive ceiling elements provide perfect acoustics and lighting. The light wooden floor makes the room appealing for both dynamic and more subdued training methods. However, energies never seem to linger in the air. In the most natural way, the room manages to remain clean and open for the following group.
You dine in a beautiful conservatory. The trees surrounding the terrace, filter the sunlight in giving a special ambience throughout the space and creating an ideal second workspace.
The large seminar room can also be easily converted to a more intimate space with exceptionally beautiful screens. In one corner is a wood burner. The lighting is also adjustable to fit specific tastes. The sound-system can be positioned anywhere in the room allowing great flexibility with the organisation of the space. A variety of accessories for yoga, meditation, and therapeutic bodywork are available.
For the teacher, there is a double bedroom with bathroom and a spacious living/counselling room. The kitchen is well equipped and has a perfect open layout, so avoids the problem of getting in each other’s way.
An easy staircase leads into the glass extension at the front of the building. It offers you a stunning view and a sitting area to enjoy it from. There is also plenty of daylight in the hallway leading to the bedrooms, and at night, night-lights provide sufficient lighting for you to find your way around.

Although Building B is situated in the middle of the terrain the encircling lanes and paths create ample space for it to remain completely free. The building itself is positioned a few meters higher than its surroundings. The main room looks out onto an area of forest with tall beech trees. In the winter, on the east side, the conservatory offers stunning views through the barren trees to ‘the meadow’, a clearing in the forest. Sometimes there are outdoor exercises being performed there, sometimes you might glimpse a tent.
Especially in the morning, at first light, you can hear the ‘dawn chorus’ an astonishing collection of songbirds singing from this unique spot. On the Building B floor plan (PDF) a precise layout of the building is shown including the size in m2 and the number of beds and bedrooms.
