The appearance of the Paltramplatz Residential Building is that of a crisp-edged cube into the matte black surface of which an irregular relief pattern of ribbon windows and loggias have been embedded. These windows and loggias make the compact monolith seem like a cabinet with drawers that can be pulled out at will. The apartment building with its 22 units fills the gap in the heterogeneous fabric of its surroundings in an utterly natural and unspectacular way. Forming an exciting contrast to the static tranquillity of the basic shape of the building is the trapezoidal cantilevered, rotated-off-axis, dynamic roof construction. Here, holes have been made for illumination purposes. This perforated, polygonal shed roof seems to hover over the building, creating an original and distinctive closure.

Roofs are perhaps the most important part of a house and often the most neglected one. Besides all, the most important role that it plays is of providing protection to the building and its residents. But at the same time it is the most neglected area of the house because as heard often “out of sight-out of mind”, the roof is also generally out of sight. One would not want to go over the roof and examine it for no reason. That’s why, until and unless it starts leaking, no one pays any attention to the roof or its maintenance.
