CARN: 3D reconstruction of Friedrichstein manor house ground floor
  • Report:

    The 3D reconstruction of Friedrichstein manor house ground floor is based on the sketches  measurement sketch ground floor plan and  Friedrichstein measurement sketch elevation of southwest façade avant-corps in combination with Friedrichstein ground floor plan after De Bodt and Elevations, details and ground floor plan.

    The image illustrates the reconstructed ground floor plan as well as its sources, room names and numbers and the relevant measurements from the measurement sketch ground floor plan.

    Room localisation ground floor: (see: Kilian Heck in: Friedrichstein, p. 113 ff)

    The rooms: 001, 002, 008, 011, 012, 013, 014, 016 are all locatable without doubt by the photographs of the interior in combination with the information from Marion Dönhoff in: "Kindheit in Ostpreußen". (see: Notes on the interior of Friedrichstein by Marion Dönhoff)

    The rooms: 003, and 023 can be located with high certainty through the photographs of the interior in combination with the ground floor plan after de Bodt. The new floor of the 023 childrens room with its wooden square tiles that can also be seen in 012, 011, 014 and 016 is a strong indicator that the room was part of the ground floor. The floor of 003 is still displayed with the old hard wood floor (also seen in 008), which may suggest that this room could have been part of the first floor. The size of the room especially its height, which seems far to small for the 7 meters (see: Notes on the interior of Friedrichstein by Marion Dönhoff) of the representative rooms of the first floor, however indicate a prefered positioning on the ground floor. (A possible localisation on the first floor would be room 114, above  014 green parlour. Unfortunately does the photography of 023 Bilderstube northwest and northeast wall not cover the part were the door to the room 114 could have been, which would eliminate that possiblity due to the large portrait of otto magnus at that spot.

    The rooms: 015, 017 and 018 can be located with high certainty through the ground floor plan after de Bodt in combination with the information from Marion Dönhoff in: "Kindheit in Ostpreußen". (see: Notes on the interior of Friedrichstein by Marion Dönhoff)   

    The room: 010 can be located with certainty next to the 011 dining hall through the tapestrys on the photograph of the room as part of the "Försterwohnung" with the information from Marion Dönhoff in: "Kindheit in Ostpreußen". (see: Notes on the interior of Friedrichstein by Marion Dönhoff)

    Also part of the "Försterwohnung" apart from room 008 was a third room. This room could have been 009. A photography that shows a dog (maybe the one of the "Förster") in a small room with a desk could have been taken in that room, which would than be a sort of work space for the "Förster" as the former 008 study room was turned into a living room (see: photographs of the "Försterwohnung" 1). But this would mean that the northwest wall of 009 would have to be closer to 008 in order to leave enough space between the wall and the window as shown in the photography. 

    The rooms: "Fliesenstube", "Plättstube" and "Kamekestube" could not be located.
