A street front panorama of the former Buntgarnwerke along Nonnenstrasse in Leipzig. Originally the area was developed by the Sächsische Wollgarnfabrik, which bought it in 1875 and transformed it into europes largest architectural complex in Wilhelminian style (german Gründerzeit era). The grand architecture we see in this photography montage by far exceeded the typical industry architecture at the time. The complex was realised by architects Pfeiffer & Händel (after 1893 Händel & Franke). The complex, which was united with other productions into the VEB Buntgarnwerke Leipzig in 1969, today is germany’s largest industrial monument. Meanwhile the complex has been redeveloped into the Elster-Park, which includes commercial spaces, restaurants, recreational facilities and flats (Elsterlofts).
There are more Leipzig streets we photographed in our archive, which you can find by yellow markers on our worldmap. In case you are interested in us creating a streetline montage for one of these streets please contact us.
