The two residential buildings consisting of 53 apartments understand it selves as integration into the partial block perimeter development of the Gründerzeit at the Rosenberggürtel. The 7 and 8 story structures incorporate the height and alignment of the neighbouring buildings. Street sided the plain plaster façade is structured by the windows and their framing ceramic fields. The courtyard sided façade is structured by pleaded volumes into bays and intimate sheltered outdoor areas such as loggias or balconies. Every building is accessed from the street passing layered green and linger zones into a spacious foyer marking the main entrance. The apartments are very clear structured. The bedrooms to the east and the living room as well as the dining area are accessed by a service zone. In addition nearly every apartment has its own sheltered outdoor space.
