Abstract:
Although split-level townhouses have proved elusive on the continent, examples are known in the Zähringen towns of modern Switzerland: several of these towns have also developed elevated walkways. There can be little doubt that the split-level townhouse and its variants were the result of commercial pressure, and an insatiable demand, not found again after the early to mid fourteenth century, for numerous small-scale retail units and undercrofts.
