The residential building in Kraepelinstraße 12, built in 1964 on the premises of the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry in Munich's district Schwabing,was completely refurbished. The building is a 5-storey solid structure with access balconies on the north side and a balcony facade on the south side. The building comprises 16 apartments, 4 apartments per floor. Both the northern facade with the access balconies and the southern balcony facade were completely renovated. The lime roof structure was demolished and replaced by a flat roof construction which meets today's requirements and is extensively planted. Moreover, the apartments' interiors were completely modernised, starting from the flooring to sanitary and electrical installations. The result is a modern residential building with the visible architectural appeal of the 1960s.
