Houses with balcony access in Dessau-Roßlau

Houses with balcony access in Dessau-Roßlau

The houses with balcony access (Laubenganghäuser) were built in 1929/30 according to plans by Hannes Meyer. He translated his motto Volksbedarf statt Luxusbedarf” (People’s necessities, not luxuries) into a multitude of small apartments, which are connected to the staircase via an arcade.

So his buildings are very different from other homes in the Törten Housing Estate, which look more like multi-family houses.
