The part of the ground floor facing the street has the appearance of covered spaces reminiscent of “arcade” around entrances. The main entrance with a gate is situated together with a car entrance at a lower elevation of the site. Behind the entrance gate is a staircase covered by a cantilevered volume.

This staircase leads to the ground floor. This level contains a partially covered circulation space “arcade” with entrances to both buildings, inner courtyard with a double oak tree and a little gate into south orientated private back garden. On the opposite side of main entrance gate is another entrance right from street level – barrier free. Apartments on the upper most floor have access to roof terraces with greenery.
