In 1909 Karl Ernst Osthaus was able to recruit Dutch architect Jan Ludovicus Mathieu Lauweriks to head the Hagener Handfertigkeitsseminar (artisan school) in Hagen. He proposed to him to build exemplary houses along the "Am Stirnband" street within the framework of his plans for the “Hohenhagen” colony of artists. Between 1910 and 1914, Lauweriks realised nine houses, based upon a system developed by himself. All houses have an individual design, but through recurring materials they also form a unit.
For the western part of the exclusive residential area, architect Peter Behrens prepared a development plan.
