In 1913, Bruno Taut designed 23 residential units around the Acacia Court. In several groups, he ordered 34 terraced houses for each family and two semi-detached houses and a detached house around a central square. The ensemble should consciously remind of a village idyll. Years before Bruno Taut's design of the horseshoe settlement, the architect anticipated the principle of a closed courtyard. The view out of the window should not compel the neighborhood, but stimulate the community. The first tenants moved in 1913.
