Due to the initiative of the residents, the residential project at the Lindenstrasse-Markgrafenstrasse in Berlin has recently been placed on the official monument list of the Berlin Senate.

As can be read at Architectuul, original parts, such as simple concrete walls, slender steel railings, wooden double windows and glass blocks have been phenomenally well preserved. Hertzberger explains in the interview, “The architect sets the standards for social contacts. When you leave your house, the apartment, you have to come into a community, you have to meet. We greet each other, we know that we are there. And then sometimes you have a coffee and chat.”
