The Andreashöfe is located in the busy downtown and forms a quiet, green and bright living oasis with 58 apartment units. The main building climbs up the seven-story fire wall of the neighbouring house, while the generous balconies face the sun like swallow nests.

The clinker facade of the basement floors reflects the former building’s use as a coach house and gives the entire complex a timeless value. The Andreashöfe proves that with a well-thought-out concept, urban densification can also create a high standard of living.
