German term or phrase: wirken die Riegel....wie ein einzelner, kompakter Baukörper
Die beiden Zeilen des modernen Wohnungsbaus vermitteln zwischen Bürgersaal und Verwaltungsgebäude. Von der Straßenfront aus gesehen wirken die Riegel inmitten der flankierenden Bauten wie ein einzelner, kompakter Baukörper.

Thanks.
