As the Kanthaus consist of two houses with multiple levels per house and multiple rooms per level, there is the need for a systemic numbering approach. The numbering is split up into different sections for each part:
This makes up for a reference like
K20-0-2 for the silent office or
K22-1-1 for the food storage room.
The houses are identified as:
The floor you enter a building on from the street or courtyard is called ground floor or numbered 0.
- B: Basement
- 0: Ground floor
- 1: Floor directly above ground floor
- 2: Top regular floor
- 3: Attic
- 4: Spitzboden
Individual rooms in the specified section are identified by numbering them counter clock wise starting from the point where you enter the floor's hallway to the right with 1.
The room numbering is individual for most floors but generally is in the range from 1 to 5.
- Hallways: Don't have numbers. Referenced as (e.g.)
- Staircase: Don't have numbers. Reference as (e.g.)
- Half-Floor rooms in staircases:
K20-0#is the room half way between
- The small "rooms" behind the bathrooms are not numbered
