"Due tio increased protection of undeveloped land and the resulting high prices for properties, the trend in recent year has been increasingly towards existing houses being divided, expanded and broken down into serval units. The free-standing single-family house is becoming increasingly marginalized. This trend can contribute to unusual but also understanding solutions. Cross generational living and shorter distances lead to a more effective way of life. As a result, distances can increasingly be covered by bicycle or on foot"  – Horst Lechner, Partner bei Lechner & Lechner Architekten
