The shared hall on the ground floor opens out to the garden on both sides and seeks a dialogue with the other buildings on the street.
The building is both humble and bold, its form a reference to the four remaining single family homes from the 1930s lining the Tramstrasse in Schwamendingen.
Under the sweeping copper roof are two further apartments with their own terraces in the oversized dormers.
