Houses 1 roomA dwelling is to be understood as a space that is closed off from the outside and is intended for residential purposes and is usually located together, which enables you to run your own household. An apartment basically has its own lockable access directly from the outside, from the stairwell or from an anteroom. However, the apartment can also include basement or floor spaces (e.g. mansards) that are outside of the actual apartment building and have been expanded for residential purposes. Rooms are all rooms intended for residential purposes, such as living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms, and other separate rooms (e.g. habitable basement and floor rooms) of at least 6 m² of living space as well as closed kitchens regardless of their size. A living room with a dining area, bedroom or kitchenette is counted as one room. Bath, toilet, hall and utility rooms are generally not counted.DwellingsNumber
