Residential and commercial building

Brüderstraße  2
Julius Kallmeyer, Wilhelm Facilides
The four-storey residential and commercial building on the corner of Neunhäuser and Brüderstraße is based on a Wilhelminian building which stood on the same site. It was designed by architects Julius Kallmeyer and Wilhelm Facilides in a moderately Modernist style. The building accentuates the intersection of the two streets with its Expressionist-influenced decoration. The horizontal arrangement of the stones, the bands of windows running around the corner and the shallow but very striking hip roof give the building a distinctive appearance. Like Leipziger Straße 3, just a short walk away, the building on Neunhäuser is a good example of the ‘New Building’ style.
