berlin mitte, 2017

*traufhöhe is basically the height of the eaves of a house (eaves’ height). for berlin there was (and in certain areas it still is in effect) a defined maximum of 22 meters. if you wanted to build a house higher than that, it got more complicated (but it was not impossible of course). there’s a nice english blog post which gets a little bit further into detail here.
