The protected monument house Samer in Rungg, Sarnthein (Sarntal, South Tyrol), was first mentioned in 1377 in the oldest surviving inventory of the Sarnthein parish church. It likely served as an inn where travelers could rest. The property is named after Michael Samer, who inhabited the estate around the year 1405.
The Samerhof consists of a main building, two extensions, and an annex (originally a utility building, later converted into a residential building). The main building comprises a masonry ground floor, a basement, and a log construction roof structure. The ground floor housed a spacious parlor, presumably the inn's main room.
UPC Architects were commissioned to restore and energetically renovate the main building. This involved cleaning, renovating, and restoring all historical components both inside and outside. Tasks included insulating the roof and exterior walls, renovating and re-roofing or re-plastering the facades, renewing the floors, adding missing sections, replacing and restoring windows and window frames to their original size. Doors and furniture in the interior were also renovated, restored, and missing parts were replaced. In the outdoor areas, the adjacent spaces were newly landscaped and planted.
Thanks to these comprehensive renovation and restoration works, the Samer house now shines in new splendor. The modern interior seamlessly blends with the historical elements, giving the house a unique atmosphere.
