This ambitious design apartment was completed in 2016. It is located in the new building of the Quartier Joli Coeur, which architecturally rounds off the brick ensemble of 1910, a former maternity clinic, as a side wing. The concept with its architectural and urban planning solution is extremely sophisticated and successful.
The floor plan offers most modern living at the highest, contemporary level. In addition to two separate rooms, there is an open living/dining and kitchen area. Both separate rooms have a bathroom attached.
From all rooms you have direct access to the spacious loggia/terrace, the particular highlight of this apartment. By flexible, semipermeable sliding walls this loggia can be protected from too much insights, but also from too much sun and light, and yet it remains bright and friendly in the apartment.
The fitted kitchen was intelligently shielded from the living/dining area by a wall panel. Through ceiling-high wall openings this area receives its generous appearance. The kitchen fronts are made of a stone structure in magnolia white and matched to the worktop in Blanco Zeus (Silestone by Cosentino). All appliances are from the reputable manufacturer Neff, sink and faucet are from Blanco. A utility room provides ample space for washing machine, dryer and everything you would rather hide in everyday life. The generous closet in the bedroom (Made in Italy) also offers plenty of space for fresh ironed shirts and colorful pleated pants.
The well-thought-through floor plan corresponds to the sophisticated design concept. This includes above all the floor-to-ceiling window surfaces, which make all rooms appear extremely transparent and immerse themselves in bright light. The choice of materials is also luxurious. All rooms have parquet flooring in old oak. Also on the loggia wood was laid, reminding of a ship's deck.
The walls are smoothly plastered and partly colored, whereby white, a reserved gray and as an accent aubergine were used. Wood was chosen as a material for the doors and the door leaves received a delicate ornamentation. Skylights arranged above allow the natural light to even reach the lower-lying rooms. Here you can experience what makes modern living in demanding dissolved architecture - light, air, sun, transparency, openness, seclusion, restrained elegance - an architecture in a quality that is hard to beat.
The building is supplied with heat via a district heating network and all rooms are heated by a convenient underfloor heating. Each room can be regulated individually via a thermostat. In the bathrooms, there are also towel radiators with electric heating cartridge.
Additional storage space is provided by a spacious, dry basement in the underground level. In addition, there is an underground car park (a separate parking space can be rented if necessary), a bike room, a storage room for strollers and wheelchairs as well as a garbage room.
The building is part of Joli Coeur, an ensemble that combines a historic monument, a modern new building and a picturesque garden with a fountain. It impresses with its strict structure. Horizontal glass walls have loggias in front of them that extend over the entire façade. In front, semitransparent sliding shutters were mounted on horizontal steel strips to provide visibility and sun protection. The horizontal basic structure gets its vertical equivalent through the sliding shutters. The overall appearance is skilfully reduced to horizontal and vertical structures.
The ground floor makes the building seem almost floating by recessed facade elements. The recessed upper floor also contributes to the impression of lightness, as does the glass parapets of the loggias. Elegance and weightlessness combined with structure is an accurate characterization of the building. Thus, it is the continuation of the Bauhaus tradition in the best sense.
The park-like garden behind contrasts with this. This garden memorial has been restored to its original state. Historical axis courses from north to south and west to east were restored and at the interface the old fountain was revived. The old trees are surrounded by the u-shaped, historic brick buildings as well as the additional new building.
The location just next to Charlottenburg Palace with its aristocratic park and the proximity to the pulse of West-Berlin is the perfect mix of relaxed countryside life and urbanity. When you open the door you literally fall into the park of the Palace and can perfectly start your day with a jog through it, enjoying impressive old monuments, lush greenery and enchanted lakes, ponds and creeks. Getting to work afterwards is easy as you can hop onto the bus, leaving just outside your door or walking to the nearby Westend station taking you to entire Berlin in the blink of an eye thanks to the circular railway (Ringbahn). If you need to fly out for a business meeting or holiday you can reach Tegel airport in 11 (!) minutes.
If you feel like staying at home and just enjoying the neighborhood, make sure to visit Bröhan-Museum, an internationally renowned collector's museum of Fine Arts. Afterwards have a small bite or go grocery shopping at Rogacki, the iconic deli in the West being most famous for its freshwater eel (smoked on spot) which is mainly caught in the nearby lakes. And why not finishing off the day at the nearby Deutsche Oper, enjoying La Traviata or Tosca, rounded off by nightcap at AltoAdige Weinbar, giving one the perfect pairing of Gewürztraminer and Kaminwurzen - as Alto Adige is the Italian name for South Tyrol. Salute!
