The “Ganghofersiedlung” was built under the National Socialists as “Siedlung Göring-Heim” for the members of the “Messerschmidtwerke” into the 1930 years. The strongly rehabilitation needy settlement houses are under ensemble and protection of historical monuments.

The glass joint functions as a visual separation at a simultaneous functional connection. The complete siding of the settlement-house remains of the outside visibly, the building got completely in his proportion.
