Mehlich as a residential and commercial complex. The listed building, designed by architects Gebert und Söhne, was initially used as a sewing machine factory and later as a Bicycle chain factory. In GDR times, the factory was used for the production of medical equipment. The property and the neighbouring Gipsstrasse property were acquired by Erika and Rolf Hoffmann in 1995 who wished to accommodate their Contemporary Art Collection (Sammlung Hoffman may be viewed by appointment). The factory was renovated and converted to gallery space, loft offices and apartments. Old details were preserved and this included the signs of war damage.The Roof was replaced by a modern construction and a new building with underground garage was built to designs of architects Architects Becker, Gewers, Kühn and Kühn on the Gipsstrasse site.
