Description

The coordinates on the map are exactly between all three houses.

All three houses are very similar in its basic design. They all have seven storeys, flat roofs, a roof terrace on the top floor, parts of the facade are covered with tiles, while the largest parts of the facades are plastered.

Nevertheless, they differ slightly from each other in the exact design. No. 3 has a discreet oriel in the middle and right area from the first to the fifth floor. This adds tension to the house, as any symmetry is avoided. The right-hand windows in the area of the oriel are designed as French windows, which makes the design of the house even more attractive.
In contrast, No. 6 has a symmetrical structure. The oriel in the middle incorportates the ribbon windows. On both sides are rooms with French windows. Symmetry is also cleverly broken in this house's design. The entrance area with a large glass window is located to the left underneath the oriel.
In No. 7 (pictures will follow) symmetry was not pursued either. On the left side are small hung windows. Next to them are elongated balconies and on the right side ribbon windows made of a mixture of casement windows and hung windows.
