IBA Housing

According to the architects, “The building commissioned by the Internationale Bauausstelling (IBA) was amongst some of the last apartment blocks to be constructed in 1989. The thirteen apartments were developed as part of the public funding programme and as such had to comply with the un-negotiable financial and legislative constraints of social housing.

The apartment block is part of a perimeter development facing the public park of LŸtzoplatz to the West and a quiet communal garden to the East. The Western and most public facade of the building uses the Berlin tradition of the glazed winter garden to extend the living area of the apartments.”
