The Consumers' co-operative wanted to show that they are "modern".

Description

An early attempt to create an impressive building with only few geometrical and architectural shapes. The balconies on the corner are on the same level as the majority of the facdes. To form the balconies, the main building line at the corner is set back. Additional horizontal lines underline the expressive architecture of the house. The ground floor once housed the shop of the Konsumverein. The first to third floors are used for living, the top floor with the small windows serves as an attic.
