Georg Simon Ohm Houses


During the last few years the district of Porz, Cologne’s largest borough, has become a vivid centre on the right bank of the river Rhine. The project “Georg-Simon-Ohm-Häuser” is situated in Urbach one of the most popular quarters of Porz.

The object is located between the Rhine and Wahner Heide at the edge of the so called Physikersiedlung, a housing complex that has been thoroughly refurbished over the last ten years and thus has attracted many buyers from the left bank of the Rhine.

Public transport is within walking distance and although the Cologne Bonn airport is only ten minutes by bus the Physikersiedlung is not in the air corridors and not affected by aircraft noise. Many shopping facilities are accessible on foot and due to the proximity of two primary schools and two secondary schools the location is especially attractive for young families.

With its forward-looking concept the “Georg-Simon-Ohm-Häuser” are setting new standards within the Physikersiedlung: 53 freehold apartments in 3 buildings were erected accessible for people with impairments, some houses furthermore receive underground garages with lifts to allow their owners barrier-free access to their cars. Ground floor apartments are leading to large gardens, the penthouses are having spacious west-facing terraces and French windows are creating a light and friendly atmosphere.The last unit were sold and handed over at the end of 2016.

Besides the buildings meet the latest energetic standards and the heating supply are also biomass derived.
