The housing estate of the Gemeinnützige Wohnungsbau AG (GAG) on Alpener Straße with its clear lines and plastered facades with brick elements was built between 1927 and 1928 to plans by Otto Müller-Jena. The aim was to create apart­ments in as simple a form as possible. Despite the very limited budget, the architect succeeded in realizing a settlement with varied facade design, inner courtyards, stores and social facilities as well as play and recreation facilities for children.
