The large-scale urban form is composed by juxtaposing and condensing the familiar figure of the traditional single-family house and mediates with graduated heights from the large settlement scale to the adjacent single-family houses. The rising and falling of the gable walls and the different surface structures of the rendered façades preserve the identity of the individual house units and form differentiated addresses for the future residents. The long sides in the east and west also have clear caesurae (e.g. passages to the park) and are broken up in their length by the projections and recesses. With its toothed silhouette, the chain of houses makes reference to the local roofscape, blends naturally into the residential area and combines the emotional advantages of a single-family house with the economic and ecological advantages of modern multi-storey housing.
