Residential colony of the Pallehner company
Schillerova 1, 3, 5, 7, Bratislava
The colony is composed of prefabricated wooden houses, produced by the ‘United Wood Industry’ in the town of Turany under German administration. It consists of a row of duplex houses and a clump of freely positioned single-family houses. The massing and facade articulation resemble houses from the mountainous areas of Germany, particularly with their hierarchic composition of gabled facades and steep pitched roofs with shed-roofed dormers. Adding to the special picturesque quality are the high conical fir-trees. In addition to the residential area, the colony was to have contained sports and recreational facilities: in the natural backdrop, a bath, gymnastics hall and bowling alley (of which only a small fragment – the small pool – was ever built).
