Abstract
“When the immediate vicinity is neither visible nor audible, the city apartment integrated into the urban fabric can be far more luxurious than the detached country home, provided both alternatives offer identical, house-like qualities of living: in the interior and at the transition to the appropriate exterior space - a small yard, a winter garden or a roof patio...

...the decision to opt for home ownership beyond the city boundaries, a voluntary choice it would seem, is in truth a flight from the insufficient housing options in the city, and less a rejection of the city as a place to live.”

Klaus-Dieter Weiss
