For the second linear building along Klopstockstraße, Günther Gottwald designed a building using cross wall construction. On the northern side of the building, stairwells lead up to the apartments. The straight stairways run parallel to the external wall , resulting in generous landings. They lead off to two-room apartments (at the building’s center) or to three-room apartments and a one-room apartment (on the eastern and western ends of the building). In the eastern part, Gottwald experimented with flexible wall and cabinet segments inserted between the floor and ceiling that could be adapted individually by the residents. Only the kitchens and bathrooms were unalterable. The façade towards the south features loggias of the same size. The balustrades consist of Eternit panels and the loggias also feature storey-high slats to offer better privacy. Both elements are arranged in the ratio of five to three and are staggered floor by floor, giving the façade a chessboard-like pattern. For the building’s finishings, the architect used largely wood construction, borrowing from Swedish architectural techniques.
