Description Change this

The building is the most westerly in the series of five tower houses, of the same height, in the north-east of the Hansaviertel. Over a floor area of 30x19 m, it reaches with its 17 floors a height of 53.50 m. Ground and first floor are 3.50 m, the other floors 3 m high.

The basic planes of the normal floors are symmetrical so that there are exactly the same parts between the north-south and east-west axes. Each standard floor has eight apartments, which are connected to the stair and a safety one, a passenger and a load elevator. These lead into the basement so that the storage rooms and the laundry are easily accessible from the apartments. On the north and south side, the house is opened by two "courtyards" reaching all floors.

Every floor has four centrally apartments of 36 square meters, wich includes a large room with a sleeping area, kitchen, built-in wardrobe, bathroom, corridor, and loggia. Close to those units, on the north and south side are the 55 square meters apartments. They have three rooms, kitchen, bathroom, built-in closet, and loggia. For all apartments, the space for entrance and corridor was reduced to a minimum in favor of the actual living space. A total of 131 apartments has placed on the building, plus a ground floor as well as part of the first floor for office purposes. The roof is a terrace available to all house residents.
