By the building management of the city of Aachen I was commissioned to create the measurement image of the music room of the Aachen Couven Museum 🔗. It is housed in the Monheim House 🔗 on Hühnermarkt. The family were wealthy pharmacists who ran a "drug wholesale" 🔗 business here in the Baroque period and founded the famous Trumpf Schokoladen AG in 1856. The most famous scion of the clan was the art collector Peter Ludwig 🔗. My task was to document the music room on the 2nd floor of the building. The surrounding wall wall painting was due for restoration. The areas next to the windows were particularly damaged. However, the 20 m² room is dominated by a beautiful fireplace with a wooden top.
