The housing estate finished in 2007 combines 56 flats in open two and three-storey parts.
Along Dinnendahlstraße, other than the fully glassed-in staircases the row of four buildings makes a rather closed impression.
The striking porches with their lateral wall slabs break up the row of homogeneous plastered facades and structure the part facing the street.
In the west, all flats open up toward the gardens with room-high glazing, so that interior and exterior sort of merge and make possible an extension of the dwelling units into the open.
Terraces, large loggias and roof terraces structure the facades, which can be opened over a large area.
The ground plans of the flats facing east and west are flexible and can “grow” or “shrink” as individual needs may require. Thus, more than one generation can live together under one roof.
