A building line stipulates for the house builder the alignment and the position of his dream house. The building must be positioned with the front side directly alongside the building line. The building line is an imperative measure and must be followed in any case.
The building line is either displayed in black and white or in a colored combination (straight line – point – straight line).
Typically, the building line is used to maintain a closed row of houses (for example alongside a road).
The building alignment surrounds an area on a property. The house can only be built within the building alignments. It is not permitted to even partially exceed the building alignment. In combination with the building alignments, defined setback to external walls above ground of adjacent buildings must also be maintained.
The building line is either displayed in black and white or in a colored combination (straight line – point).
A combination of building alignment in conjunction with a building line may be stipulated in the land-use plan.
