Nonsmoking apartment building?

Does such a thing exist - where smoking is banned not just inside a particular flat, but throughout the whole apartment building, including balconies, gardens, etc? If so, how to find it?

(looking for living space free of secondhand smoke wafting in the windows...)

Smoking is generally permitted in rental apartments. Although landlords sometimes point out in apartment advertisements that it is a non-smoking apartment - even if there is a corresponding prohibition in the rental agreement, this is not tenable. If the tenant disregards it, there is usually no consequence. A general ban on smoking is legally understood as an encroachment on the constitutionally guaranteed personal rights. However, this does not mean that tenants in their apartment do not have to be considerate of others when smoking.

Re: Nonsmoking apartment building?

Yes there are.

Probably well sought-after.

One example

Google translate.

The building cooperative Schönheim (BGS) has renovated and renewed its Eyhof settlement in Albisrieden. 90 two and a half to five-room apartments, all of which are already rented.

One of the buildings is special and attracts attention: House A, whose 40 apartments are exclusively for non-smokers. There is a strict ban on smoking for all friends of the glow stick, not only in the apartment, but also in the stairwell, on the balcony and in the underground garage. "Our non-smoking house met with huge interest when it came to letting," says Rolando Verardo, President of the Schönheim building cooperative. "We could have easily built and rented three such houses."
