Adjacent to the historic house and town museum "Warleberger Hof", the saddle roofing house with two exclusive apartments and a business unit on the ground floor is completely clad with Cortensteel. It forms an independent accent and marks the urban access to the new quarter with multi-family houses, townhouses and a student house.With a cafe on the ground floor, the steel house will become the small center of the new brick district. The saddle roof as a sign of classic, traditional house typology stands for a connecting piece of the quarter with the structure of the old town centre. The steel material, with its rough and industrial character, is also reminiscent of the tradition of the shipbuilding industry of the city of Kiel.The steel-house-apartments are designed as loft apartments with large glass sliding windows and an open living space. The upper apartment as a maisonette offers a two-storey living room with steel staircase and a gallery level under the saddle roof. From the masterbedroom on the gallery the view leads to the main street of the new neighbourhood
