Problematic house types

Many villas clearly belong to the types or their derivatives discussed in the foregoingchapters. Among the remainder are two kinds of plan whose relation to them is arguable. The first comprises some left over from the hall type; they are like a larger Inzigkofen, either yards flanked by one or two small houses, each equivalent to a row-type unit, or inordinately wide halls with a few rooms at the ends. Structure and function alike require discussion. The second comprises simple houses, mostly of three-room plan, which do not easily fit the row type and are of similar size to the houses or units of the first group.
