In the 1920s, the Neu-Tempelhof garden city was built according to the plans of Fritz Bräuning at the gates of what was at the time the Berlin border. Alongside symmetrical roads, different variations of row houses and double houses are arranged as an attractive urban development. In between there are small squares and green areas. Today the settlement lies in the center of Berlin's inner city, by the former Tempelhofer Airport and the parking facility Tempelhofer Freiheit.

The urban structure was largely preserved, while within the houses spaces have been expanded and modified. The current building functions are as varied as the houses and residents themselves. Sensible interventions in the structure allow for extensions, conversions and energetic restorations, depending on the user requirements. Since 2009, 8 buildings have been individually renovated in this manner.
