Multi-family home to 1918

Up to 1918 the typical multi-family house of the so-called Gründerzeit period (1870 to 1918) was two to four storeys high, arranged in open or closed blocks around a central courtyard. The buildings were either constructed from masonry (plastered or exposed brickwork) or masonry in combination with half-timbering.  

The composition of this synthetic building can be seen here.
