  • Four-story triplet (left-hand portion)

Four-story triplet (left-hand portion). In each of the building’s three units, the staircase divided the interior layout into two halves. On the ground floor were a front porch, a small entry hall, a washroom, coal storage, and a larder. In the rear of the house was a terrace with stairs leading down into the garden. The first floor housed the kitchen and living room. A new modern housing element was a breakfast nook in the larger-than-usual kitchen that replaced the classical dining room – meaning that the living room could be used exclusively to relax and for entertaining guests. On the second floor were two bedrooms and a bathroom with WC. The top floor consisted of a rooftop terrace.
