The so-called HICOG housing estates developed after WW II for the employees of the American High Commissioner of Germany office in the catchment area of the new German capital Bonn.
The housing estate in Pennenfeld-Muffendorf, at Röntgenstraße and Hans Böckler-Allee, is characterised by disparate structures and a loose arrangement. Various types of buildings of various heights and sizes makes for a rather varied picture. The position of the structures toward the street line is also heterogeneous and lets the green spaces of the housing estate meet.
The twelve-storey high rise designed by Sep Ruf at the centre of the estate stands out from these rows. The reinforced concrete skeleton construction principle can be seen in this cubic structure. Another notable feature is the flat roof slab, which seems to hover above the building.
In 2015 the front of the high-rise building was reconstructed by the Jeansch GmbH. The year after this reconstruction was priced with the Deutscher Fassadenpreis 2016.
