Hofmeierhaus House Schotteck

Hofmeierhaus Haus Schotteck Am Kapellenberg 1, 1a-c: The single-storey Hofmeierhaus on the driveway to the main building was originally built in 1891 according to plans by Christian Bummerstedt (1857–1891, Bremen).

Villa Schotteck next to Villa Lesmona : Due to the death of the architect, the main building was planned by the Berlin architects Reimer and Körte after a competition. It was built as one of the three “daughter residences” of Schloss Mühlenthal in the historicist era in 1892/1894 for the banker Johann Georg Wolde (1846–1911) and his wife Adele (1852–1932), a daughter of Baron Ludwig Knoop. Villa Schotteck with hipped roofs and half-hip roof , loggias , three-storey risalit , tower window and two-storey connecting building is influenced by the style of the English country house and the Queen Anne style . The wooden decorations inside were designed by the architect Rudolf Alexander Schröder . In 1910 he also planned the rosarium , the two baroque fountain troughs in front of the terrace and the water lily basin.
The main building, Hofmeierhaus and park form an overarching ensemble. Schotteck was the nickname of Georg "Schotte" Wolde because he was very stingy. He was a partner in the Schulze und Wolde money-changing company, which was merged with Deutsche Bank in 1929.

The Wolde couple had an extensive collection of pictures by u. a. Delacroix , Corot , Renoir , Trübner and Liebermann , who also portrayed Adele in 1911. Some of the pictures are now in the Kunsthalle Bremen .

Villa Schotteck as well as the country estates Haus Kränholm and Albrechtsburg were inhabited by daughters of Baron Knoop and their families. The buildings were converted in 1910/11 according to plans by Rudolf Alexander Schröder . In 1979 the houses were restored.

During the Second World War there was an NSV school in the villa . Later a tuberculosis clinic, then a reception center for smallpox cases and then a home for the handicapped was housed here. Today (2018) the building system is used by the Gecko agency as the headquarters of a professional training center.
