Description: Heinrich Vogeler called the house "Barkenhoff" and turned it into an artist's home. The Art Nouveau villa became a meeting point for intellectuals and artists. Vogeler lived there with his wife Martha. The three daughters Mieke, Mieke, Helene and Mascha were born here. After separating from Martha, Vogeler founded the Barkenhoff community and work school in 1919. A metal and a wood workshop have been providing the residents work and bread, and the garden was used for self-sufficiency from then.

In 1923 the project "work school" got into financial difficulties, the Barkenhoff temporarily became a children's home and received financial support. In 1924 Vogeler sold the Red Aid building. The children's home had to be closed in 1932.
