Stefan Forster transforms a 200 metre long building block into eight separate houses 

When looking at the eight town villas in southern Leinefelde, it quickly reveals why this city has long served as a model for the urban redevelopment in areas of the former GDR. The transformation of a 200 metre long building block made of prefabricated slabs into eight separate, free-standing houses represents the most recent example of this exemplary process of urban redevelopment. The architect and his team tore down every second staircase and the adjoining flats and removed one storey from each of the now separate buildings. As a playful element, disguised steel balconies were added.
