The residential ensemble composed of an angle-building and a tower, marks the urban development prelude to a new city quarter at Lindenauer Hafen (Lindenauer harbour). Both buildings have five floors. The tower-like solitaire is higher than the neighbouring buildings because of its greater floor height. It breaks with the uniform height line of the new harbour quarter and creates a connection to the historic harbour warehouse buildings of the 1930s in the northeast.
This prominent position is consistently continued in the architectural design. The tower shows clear edges: All openings - windows as well as loggias - are integrated into a uniform grid and are framed by a precise linear cubature. In contrast, the courtyard-side facade of the angular building steps behind the edge of the building.
The red-brown brick facade picks up on the design of the Wilhelminian factory buildings nearby. This industrially influenced formal language obvious refers to the industrial architecture of Fritz Höger - leading representative of North German brick impressionism and architect of the Leipzig Konsumzentrale. Also in selected maritime-like details such as filigree parapet railings, porthole windows and exterior floor-to-ceiling curtains this reference is visible. This ship-sail-like privacy and sun protection can be open and closed individually and becomes an interactive element of the facade.
Between angle and tower is a courtyard that merges into an adjacent promenade and park. So the ensemble forms a permeable, structural boundary that is conducive to integration of the building structures in the new quarter and sets a self-confident sign for modern urban development.
