This row of houses consists of three individual houses, which were, however, planned together by the architect Alfred Illner and built in 1903/04. According to the list of monuments in Plauen, the owners of the individual buildings were Hermann Söllner, Bernhard von Wolfersdorf and Emil Erler (from left). The elaborate, picture-perfect façades in the style of late historicism contain elements of Art Nouveau and Neo-Baroque. The predominantly floral ornaments of the oriels are striking, on the right corner building also with figures and animals. The picture is additionally characterised by the dominant roof extensions with tail gables and turrets with Welsch bonnets in the corner positions.
Neundorfer Straße is an important east-west axis in Plauen. It runs over 3 km from Plauen town hall in the centre westwards through the Neundorfer Vorstadt to the Neundorf district. We see the buildings 171, 173 as well as the corner building Kasernenstraße 1 with the Westend pharmacy as business tenant.
