The Vogelweide estate was built in 1930 and 1931 in the ‘New Building’ style. The thirteen rows of flat-roofed residential blocks were designed by architect Heinrich Faller. The buildings, which housed 520 tiny flats, are rigorously Cubist. Entranceways, windows and loggias give them their characteristic look. Particularly striking are the narrow bands of windows over the entrances and the overhanging cornice-like eaves.
The pale stucco façades are broken only by the window- and doorframes which are painted red, green or blue, the colours alternating from block to block.
The 800-metre-long estate is close in character to a garden city. Pergolas connect the buildings and provide a strip of green, shielding them from the road. Six shops are located in the corner blocks and in the centre of the estate.
