Description

In the centre of Halle, which is full of historic and historicising houses, this building stands out very much. A store are integrated on the ground floor up to the 3rd floor. The 4th floor on the north side in Gustav-Anlauf-Strasse is a kind of mezzanine.

The ochre-coloured building is decorated and accentuated on the west side towards the market square with horizontal pilaster strips between each floor. These pilaster strips are located at the upper edge of the windows. In contrast, no pilaster strips are used on the north side on Gustav-Anlauf-Straße, but the window sills below the windows are strongly accentuated.

A thick pilaster strip separates the ground floor from the rest of the house. At the corner, it is decoratively designed as a rounding.
