Project development After the German reunification, 13 families from Schöneiche joined forces to build a settlement on a cheap leasehold plot, partly in Selbsthifle. The project was subsidised by the state of Brandenburg with 1,100 euros per square metre of living space.
Urban planning 4 curved groups of terraced houses, loosely staggered
Architecture 2/ to the garden 3-storey terraced houses, horizontally boarded,
flat monopitch roofs (staggered over 2nd or 3rd floor), extensive green roof; modern architectural form, oriented towards Bauhaus or new types of terraced houses; houses without basement; individual size and layout of the individual houses, depending on the wishes of the owners.
The ancillary rooms (kitchen, toilet, bathroom, etc.) have lower room heights than the main rooms; the resulting height step allows for a narrow band of windows between the two monopitch roofs
Apartment size 109- 170 sqm.
Completion  1995/96 – 1998
