The plot is surrounded by a heterogeneous environment. A wide variety of house shapes and sizes are lined up close to each other. Overarching infrastructures connect this district with the larger centres in the north (Cologne) and south (Bonn). The design provides an ensemble that is linked to the surrounding area by a strong urban identity. This integration takes place through the arrangement of the buildings and the location of public, semi-public and private spaces. In order to interweave the surroundings with the design, the ensemble consists of two separate building elements. The eastern wing of the building encloses and closes the northeastern corner of the plot and follows the boundary of the plot. The western wing of the building closes the south-western corner of the property with its L-shape. This block edge development defines the urban edges at all four corners of the site.
