This 48 m² apartment is on the 2nd floor, which can be easily reached via an elevator. The division into kitchen, bathroom, living / dining / sleeping area and hall with adjoining storage room creates a spacious impression. A ceiling-high, wall-wide sliding window between the kitchen and dining / living area ensures natural brightness also in the kitchen.
Living / dining / sleeping area form a spacious space that is surrounded by a large south-facing balcony. Ceiling-high glass walls and window elements provide plenty of light and brightness (south and east orientation) and a view towards the outside. Here, the size and shape of the window formats with their bars, the movable and permanently glazed parts were played with. This gave this residential unit something striking, which distinguishes and sets it apart.
The entire apartment has rather restrained design features, thus creating a harmonious overall impression. Smoothly plastered walls in pale ocher or white, the floor in walnut look in the living / dining / sleeping and hall area responds to the sequence of rooms and preserves the visual context. Zoning through transparent room dividers or plant grids would be the right answer to make different functions visible without destroying the generous entirety.
The white on windows, doors, skirting boards, tiles, bathroom elements provides freshness and subdued accentuation. The beige-colored fitted kitchen, like the base unit in the bathroom, goes well with the floor in terms of color and material.
This small but nice apartment, which is in an extremely well-kept condition, impresses with its functionality and originality. It is the perfect implementation of the architecture of the 1970s; intelligent, minimalist with a focus on brightness and the view.
Ideal for singles or commuters who love cooking and never want to miss out on socializing and communication. The modern bathroom also ensures bathing fun or the joy of morning styling. Everything has been thought of here.
The building at Katharinenstrasse 19A in Charlottenburg shows striking architectural elements from the building era of the 1970s; cubic structures staggered in height, size and depth, precast concrete elements e.g. as balcony parapets, formwork in light gray, different in format, but carefully structured and arranged. The windows are highlighted by intense red, which can also be found on the railings and steel columns outside and inside. Terrazzo tiles in anthracite gray complete the typical features in color.
Overall, the complex impresses with the preservation of the typical characteristics of this architecture with many spacious, green communal areas. Nothing was changed or "corrected" here, rather the intention was to preserve and maintain the original, external appearance. The owner community and property management permanently ensure cleanliness and sophistication, so that one can already speak of a positive example in recent building history. Purists with a focus on functionality get their money's worth here.
There is a separate covered parking space in the inner courtyard, which can optionally be purchased for 48,000 EUR. The kitchen appliances come from Samsung and Bosch. The fittings and ceramics in the bathroom from Ikea. The entire apartment was renovated in 2014. Additional storage space is provided by a dry basement room that can be easily reached via the elevator.
Katharinenstrasse is a quiet side street just off Ku'damm. So one lives wonderfully quiet, but with metropolitan flair right around the corner.

Of course, daily needs are also taken care of; pharmacies, banks, supermarkets and more are all within walking distance.
