Baldurstraße 1–13, Homerstraße 10–12, Dietrichstraße 1–5 und 2–12, Dachauer Straße 275–287, Walter-Flex-Straße 2–14, Postillonstraße 2–10, Munich, Germany
The trapezoidal four-wing residential complex with an inner courtyard was built between 1926 and 1928 according to plans by architect Heinrich Bergthold as part of an originally planned large housing estate in Munich-Moosach.
Baldurstrasse in Moosach runs from Dachauer Strasse along the southern wall of the Westfriedhof to Nederlinger Strasse. There it continues westward from Allacher Straße.
It was named in 1900 after Baldur, the Germanic god of light and summer.
The village of Moosach was an independent municipality until June 30, 1913, and when it was incorporated it became part of the 28th municipal district of Neuhausen-Moosach, which also included the Gern district of the former municipality of Nymphenburg.
The plaster buildings of the housing estate in Baldurstrasse and Homerstrasse are located directly opposite the Borstei housing estate.
Borstei is a listed housing estate built between 1924 and 1929 by the architect and developer Bernhard Borst.
Housing Complex Baldurstrasse
The head building of the Heinrich Bergthold housing estate shown here facing Dachauer Strasse is four-story, the other wings three-story.
The facades facing the spacious and green courtyard are enlivened by two-sided stair towers and clinker-framed axes with double loggias.
The windows facing the landscaped courtyard are framed with clinker surrounds.
The elongated fronts of the listed complex are rhythmized by the sequence of house entrances framed by poured concrete.
