This residential and office building is to be completed in the coming years at the southern entrance to Kronsberg Süd, a new district that has its origins in the development plans laid down for EXPO 2000. The plot, triangular in shape with one blunted tip, is bordered on the south by a public square and to the north by a communal courtyard for the residents. The inwardly angled façade, and the contrasting loggia parapets of folded steel take up the motif of the triangle. The steel forms a deliberate contrast to the warm red clinker-brick façade which sculpturally modulates the building with its brick-on-edge courses and deep reveals. This clinker façade, and the colour design for the new district, echo local building traditions.

All the apartments have a private outside space in the form of a loggia or a terrace. Above the base storey, which accommodates three small-business units, are two- to four-roomed apartments with different ground plans. Both council-funded and independently financed apartments support the mixed use of the building.
