our weekend: goodbye peute


some of you might remember the art exhibition i wrote about in november of last year. i mentioned that part of our circle of friends had been using some areas of the 4th floor in an old warehouse building in a harbour area of hamburg called "peute" as a music practice room, and for art events and concerts.

the building is in quite a disastrous state, so some serious tearing down, refurbishing and renovating needs to be done. we (and tenants on the other floors, most of them with creative businesses) were asked to move out by the end of june. we will probably never find a place again so close to the city center, so affordable and with so much  s p a c e  and privacy for all our different creative endeavours.

so on saturday, together with friends and family, we rocked the place, with a barbecue on the balcony and all the different bands and combos playing their farewell to a truly special and very unique place!

i just thought i might share some photos i took. this place will never be the same again, which (as you can see from some of the photos) it can't, really! at the same time, i felt quite nostalgic as i roamed the grounds and took in the gorgeous views for the very last time...







have a lovely start to the week!!

How sad Sylvia, it's like saying so long to a friend!
I do hope you and your friends will find another building for all of your creative works.

Although it's sad to say goodbye and have to change locations, keep positive. You'll always have the good memeories from this place! :)

too bad i never got to go. i love that picture with the clock. the place does look like it's seen better days, although the final use of it was probably the nicest, most fun and creative way. i really hope you can find another place!
