Two wide gaps in the perimeter block from Wall Street and Neue Roßstraße in Berlin-Mitte combine inside the block to a spacious garden. It is bounded to the west by a long fire wall and a flat technique building of the BVG. In this place Modersohn & Freiesleben have built a three-sided free-standing, eight-storey apartment building, a garden house with four dwellings on each floor. The position allows for some freedom from all the policies a house on the street has to fulfill. A widely graded cubature was created which ensures that all apartments are ideally aligned with their living room and balcony. Above the base clad in natural stone the facades are plastered such that scratch, comb and smooth plaster give a lively surface pattern in finely different colors. Special attention was paid to the hall as the public space of the dwelling house.
