Sammlung Platz in Nappanee, Indiana
Designed and constructed with community in mind, “Sammlung Platz” (which translates to “Gathering Place” in German) is an expansive event space for hosting wedding receptions, community gatherings, business banquets, product shows, family reunions, and more. The 16,800 square-foot, two-story, timber-framed structure welcomes guests with a grand timber-framed entry vestibule with flanking covered porches, timber trestle trusses spanning a remarkable 80 feet, generous dormers and cupola that provide ample natural light, and a second-floor mezzanine with custom fabricated steel railings.
Complete with a full-service kitchen, a separate recreation room with a full bath, a sizable first floor open space with a surrounding mezzanine, and countless amenities, including a lighting control system, air conditioning, and sound system, Sammlung Platz combines modern features and conveniences with traditional fabrication techniques and architectural inspirations. The open and airy structure was built by B&D Builders of Paradise, PA, who specialize in custom timber-frame projects and have a long-standing history in this unique form of construction. The results of their expertise will be enjoyed by the community of Nappanee, Indiana, and regional guests for generations to come.
