Autobahn Apartments | Schlangenbader Straße

June 26, 2016

Apparently this is the only example in the world of a housing complex built on top of a motorway–not sure if that’s a good or bad thing. Wikipedia by way of Google Translate doesn’t say how or why someone decided to build an extremely long bar building on top of a highway, so I guess it was just one of those urban planning, space saving experiments of the 1970s. There are underground parking decks below the motorway, which has apparently been soundproofed to the point of being completely inaudible to residents. Also comes with automated vacuum waste collection and district heating!
