The building plot is situated on the inside of a generously laid-out city block in Rödelheim’s old town, marked by multi-storied Gründerzeit ensembles as well as single residential buildings from various parts of the 19th century. The specific cityscape of the area with its well-kept single buildings is worth sustaining. With its threefold structure, the new building body resembles a solitary urban element due to both measures and symmetrical layout, thus adapting harmoniously to the Gründerzeit typology of its surroundings. 

Clear-lined punctuated facades with detailed window embrasures, a conscientiously crafted entrance area, as well as structuring cornices, a calm roof form and attractive greenery together form a visual whole. The generous layouts refer to the classical Gründerzeit outline.  The main living space and kitchen area of the apartments open up to the garden. Floorlength windows and light-toned, washed facades recall the formal language of  town villas.
