210 new flats, 93 of which are SMART flats, in seven buildings connected via a walkway, with barrier-free open spaces and common areas.

The Preyersche Höfe are a socially sustainable residential project that encourages diversity. Each of the seven residential buildings has its own identity thanks to a variety of flat types and individual facades. Although each building looks like an independent house on its own plot, all seven are connected by means of a walkway on the third or fourth floor.

93 of the 210 units are SMART flats with a ceiling height of 3 metres. These offer more light, air and storage space, even if the floor area is limited. The residents have a say in what the ground plans of their flats should look like as well as what the common areas should be used for. The shared open spaces – on the roof and in the yard – are barrier-free and easily accessible. They offer residents the space for all sorts of activities and also encourage intergenerational communication.
