Architecture
The ribbon development housing complex is situated between Maroltingergasse and Montleartstraße, and consists of 3 three-storey buildings of different lengths with a total of ten “Stiegen” (separate housing units). All three buildings have a gabled roof, and a cornice protrudes at the longitudinal side. The façades facing Maroltingergasse are broken up by balconies with colourful balustrades - single ones or in twos and threes. The statically required support brackets are staged as design elements. During restoration, the two especially long façades with 30 and 20 window axes, respectively, were rhythmised with a colourful design. The façade of only eleven window axes has staircases in different colours. The slightly inclined terrain is levelled by the base zone; at Montleartstraße it is high enough to accommodate a naturally lit shop.
