The architects created a prototypical building that offers luxurious spacial graciousness, despite the tight budget. The nodal building structure enabled a high degree of compactness with a relatively small facade area. Costs saved were used for high-quality materials: Instead of the typical local masonry brick, full ceiling-height panes of thermal insulation glazing that feature sliding elements provide a “loft-like” spatial impression. Eight apartments per story are grouped around a 26 m tall atrium. Larger social housing units are situated along the attractive building corners. Smaller student apartments are oriented along the eastern and western facades. The intimate atrium serves residents as a meeting point.
