Six apartment blocks each with six residential units and car ports were built in Altkönigblick, a district of Friedberg, Frankfurt. The buildings form the southern end of the so-called Weiße Stadt. Correspondingly, the residential houses have been kept in a white basic colour and are characterised by a reduced and clear design. The facades take up the horizontal effect of the rows of houses: the windows cluster to form horizontal bands and the spacious balconies are emphasised by overhangs and a continuation of the solid parapets up to under the window strips. Other design elements were consciously foregone. 
The apartments offer spacious terraces and balconies facing south with a view over Kätcheslachpark.
