The scheme at the northern edge of the city of Frankfurt's boundaries is organised in five east - west oriented four-storey rows of houses. The plan is based on a regular structural grid system, with kitchens, bathrooms and entrance to the individual units in one zone along the north facing side of the building and a series of spatially equal rooms towards the south. The structure’s only load bearing elements are beams and columns - none of the internal walls are load-bearing - meaning that even party walls can be removed to combine two smaller units into one large unit. Small service cores are located on each grid line (at the north facade), allowing for a range of connection possibilities.
