Hutterite BARN and FOLK HOUSE /h.n. 497/

Hutterite BARN

National cultural monument

An important part of the building stock of the monument zone are farm buildings. The most important building is the original barn dated to the end of the 18th century with significant elements of Hutterite architecture. The one-room building is made of unfired bricks on a stone foundation with low side walls. The dominant atypical mass of the building is the roof, which extends to the terrain. The gables of the barn are formwork and advanced in front of the facade.

There are several other barns from the 19th century in the monument zone. Together with the barns and stables, their architecture does not differ significantly from the traditional folk farm buildings of the region. Their building materials are unfired brick, stone and wood. Many barns and stables still have the preserved Hutterite angled roof truss.

FOLK HOUSE /h.n. 497 /

National cultural monument

The folk house is a typical building, which is a combination of folk architecture of Záhorie or Kopanice with Hutterite architecture. Objects of this type were built by the descendants of the Hutterites from the first half of the 19th century. All of them were built before the beginning of the 20th century, as follows from the historical land map of the village Sobotište from 1900. The building now belonged to the now-rehabilitated Hutterite barn, from which a stone foundation has been preserved in the garden.
