For decades, the courtyard of a block in the urban centre of Düsseldorf was occupied by low sheds. They were replaced by a new, four storey structure with twelve affordable rental housing units, expanding across the entire width of the lot. The architects placed the building in the middle of the property, creating two green backyards. The first one contributes to the quality of the apartments of the existing block border and is delineated by the northern facade of the new building.
