The urban surroundings of the site are characterized by a heterogenous building and utilization structure and by the topographic height difference to the "Wiental". The project takes up these existing urban parameters and re-interprets them. The perimeter development along Breitenseer Straße is continued, the ledges are adjacent to those of the neighbouring houses. Thus, the level difference arranges the two buildings proportionally.
