In line with the smaller-scale building development in the district of Bornheim in Frankfurt, this new structure is divided into three volumes. The individual parts are all different in dimensions and have three to five floors. Similar proportions and common design features – from the continuous clinker-clad base course to façade treatment and pitched roof – create a harmonious ensemble on this gently undulating site. The horizontal articulation of the façades via cornices is countered by vertically oriented pilaster strips and window formats. The position of the blocks, with either the eaves or the gable end facing the street, emphasises the line of the street and marks out the edge of the space. Each apartment has a generously sized loggia or private garden (ground floor), oriented towards the shared inner courtyard. In total 26 apartments are being created here, for rental or sale.
