The two linear blocks and solitaire building were designed and built in line with a pre-existing urban master plan. These basic forms are interpreted in an architectural language of reduction, with large, prominent balconies, cuboid in impression and offering ample scope for flexible uses. Cornices continue the lines of the parapets and balcony railings around the buildings, articulating the façades and emphasising the storey divisions. A key theme in the estate is the integration of the apartments with the green zones in the interior. All the apartments have barrier-free access and are built to the KfW 40 energy-efficiency standard, which ensures much lower heating costs than in conventionally built houses.
