the reality

This is how they preserve the Jugend style houses. There is a strong school of thought that ripping out the insides (with all the original features) and preserving just the outer walls is a bit of a travesty and that this is turning the town into a Disney World place. The alternative is to pull the whole lot down and that would be much worse - so this is the very expensive and difficult procedure they go through every time they feel the need for renewal.
