The two bodies of different heights are defined by a strong urban shape and structure by a concise geometric pattern of balconies. This feature puts the building into a balanced scale in relation to its surroundings, thus generating an appearance which is full of character and of high identification value. The exposed northern side’s compact plan and design respond to the adjacent rail traffic, balconies and terraces as well as private gardens open towards the southern courtyard. Generous public and semi-private green areas and recreation zones are located at both fronts of the building.
Their functional ascription is determined by local conditions and influences. Openness and architectural transparency characterizes the whole ground floor zone as a visual, functional and atmospheric link between common indoor and outdoor areas. Aside from the pathways it is especially the multifunctional pavilion which enhances the communal character. The apartment block’s roof landscape was conceived as a versatile common zone. Features which foster neighbourly interaction are primarily located on the ground floor and the 6th floor with its attached roof terraces.
