Residential housing project Münzlishausen near Baden. The housing project emerged from a competition held by the town of Baden in 1989 for an estate with a high-density building type. The 4,680 m2, almost triangular parcel of land was made available by the town authorities within the framework of the building laws. The project of ten units had to exhibit the qualities of detached single-family housing and yet have the economic advantages of a traditional terraced housing. Despite the spatial diversity of the various terraced housing, partly the result of the intensive participation of the 10 various parties represented by the developers, a well-proportioned unity of the entire estate was striven for. The estate consists of two simple two-storey rows with flat roofs. The two basic principles of the architecture are tangible in the façades: it follows the unified idea of the general concept in the modular construction, but in the variated window placings it also mirrors the individual character of the interior of every house. The façades orientated towards the entrance paths are clad with light-brown, bakelite-impregnated wooden panels. Extensive glazing dominates the façades facing the gardens that form a strong link with the outside. A pavilion made of 2 concrete walls forms the end of the gardens that belong to the longer row of houses. These open outdoor spaces could be converted into studios in the future.
