With his buildings on Fischereiweg, Engemann adhered to a moderately modernist formal language. This is reflected in his choice of the most common building form at the time: the multi-storey residential building with a hipped roof.
His own residential house also incorporated traditional and modern elements in equal measure. The sloping hipped roof, roof overhang, and dormers are in keeping with tradition. At the same time, the white plastering of the building with the horizontal dark plaster surface around the corners and the windows was a typical structuring element in modernist architecture.
The Engemann House is set back from the road, with its narrow side facing towards it. There used to be a fence around the property. The two-storey building with a basement contained two apartments, and there were partitions in the attic.
The other detached and semi-detached houses at Fischereiweg 20, 22, and 26 and Stephansweg 1 also had features of moderate modernism, such as pitched roofs with dormers and windows arranged in bands.
