SAVE MULEGNS

 

LAST CHANCE FOR MULEGNS

The unique architectural and cultural-historical substance of the village of Mulegns is under substantial threat. The Nova Fundaziun Origen, winner of the Wakker Prize 2018, would like to acquire the buildings of the Post Hotel Löwe and the White Villa of the Jegher family in Mulegns and save them from the looming destruction.

 

 

THE VISION

The potential of Mulegns is its history. The village knows a lot about travelling. Illustre guests from many countries have spent the night in the magnificent beds of the Hotel Löwe. The confectioner dynasties Jegher and Poltera are surrounded by great legends from Bordeaux, Innsbruck and Constantinople. On the plateaus around the village, fabulous fairies and bold shepherds are at work. These are the stories we want to tell. With exhibitions, room installations, theatre evenings, concert soirées and cultural-historical guided tours.


Mulegns tells these stories. And thus finds new life.


WINTER MODE 2020/21

 

RENOVATION WORK

Meanwhile, the facades of the Post Hotel Löwe are being leached and the wood of the window frames is being freed from paint residues. The roof over the Art Nouveau hall, which showed considerable damage, was given a copper roof before the onset of winter, which will protect the building for decades to come. Inside, frescoed ceilings are being uncovered with scalpel knives. Coloured floral vines and antique mask motifs are coming to light. Some of the historic furniture will be restored and reupholstered over the winter. If the financing of the building measures is successful, the partially renovated Post Hotel Löwe will open in summer 2021 – with a large exhibition about the illustrious and bizarre guests that the house has hosted. 

 

Perhaps the great-grandmother of the present Queen of England, Mary Adelaide of Teck, will stay again with her entourage. To ensure that the arrival of the royal great-grandmother is not forgotten, the construction net has been printed in colour and hopefully tells of a summer ray of hope - beyond the great cultural silence that has descended on theatres and concert halls.
