The seven-storey apartment building was built as part of a larger project development as one of a total of ten houses for building cooperatives on a former industrial wasteland in the center of Berlin. Veauthier Architekten developed the building in close consultation with the client group and combined very different forms of living under one roof.

The first floor and second floor are shared by three apartments, which are organized like two-storey townhouses. They each have their own entrances from the street and a garden in the courtyard. The staircases to the townhouses serve as a buffer to the public street and have small front gardens. While the townhouses tend to be closed towards the street, they are generously glazed on the ground floor towards their gardens and have large balconies on the upper floor.

The other upper floors each house a small and a large family apartment, while spacious maisonettes with roof terraces extend over floors six and seven. The building does not keep this typological diversity to itself - its internal structure can also be seen on the façade. Projections and recesses as well as continuous railings on the street side emphasize the horizontal division of the building into different residential typologies.

Die Mischung von Wohnungsgrößen und Raumprogrammen öffnet das Haus für eine Bewohnerschaft mit unterschiedlichen Lebensentwürfen, Familienstrukturen und Haushaltsgrößen.
