This high-quality and extremely spacious duplex commercial unit is located in the front building of an absolutely representative stucco building and offers a unique flair.
The basement with its vaulted ceilings, the concrete floor, the whitewashed walls and the gray-blue painted steel spiral staircase has the character of an industrial hall. You first enter into the design fitted oak kitchen with ceramic hob, oven and Grohe-Blue fitting (if wanted inclusive sparkling water). In addition to the kitchen there is also a storage room with plenty of space. From the dining area you get to the conference section with a practical built-in shelving in the back of the space. From here the toilet and bath area connects; 3 modern toilets and a separate shower allow a relaxed working and feel-good atmosphere. Everywhere high quality ceramics and fittings were installed.
The decidedly industrial, deliberate impression of the souterrain contrasts with the rather dignified, classic ambience of the upper floor. This can be accessed via a small staircase directly from the street.
A unique impression of spaciousness is provided through historic windows and doors, newly polished plank floors, elaborate stucco ceilings with ceiling heights of around 4 meters, white painted walls, and spacious openings through double doors as connections between several rooms. Through the large shop windows and the east-west orientation a lot of light comes in throughout the entire day.
As a balance to this traditional environment, which is set in a sophisticated manner, modern fittings are expertly used. Built-in wardrobes, a fitted kitchen, bathroom cabinets or the interpretation of a light shaft set architectural interior highlights. These installations are combined with a special colourfulness. Blue-green, blue-gray, yellow-orange, red-orange, green or gray-brown set color accents in the otherwise ivory white. This creates an exciting ambience between old and new, classic and modern, white and colorful.
This commercial unit is thus particularly suitable for design-savvy industries, such as fashion, architecture or design, but also for all others who value sophisticated premises.
The beautiful, historical facade shines after its renovation in 2015 in old splendor. All old elements have been preserved and elaborately restored, as you can clearly see on the balcony railing, the stucco elements or the windows. Also in the interior of the building, emphasis was placed on the preservation of the old. In the entrance area of the space you can feel this on the floor mosaics. The façade, the stairwell, the commercial unit and the flats show the high standards of its owners and tenants and the pride of being able to reside here.
Safety is provided by electrically and infinitely opening metal grills in front of all windows as well as access via a smart keyless system. Practical are also the partially covered bicycle parking spaces on the enclosed courtyard, which can be accessed directly from the back room through the floor-to-ceiling patio door.
The size is 209 m² plus an approx. 11 m² large storage room with direct access from the souterrain floor, thus the useful area ist about 220 m². The property has a gas heating.

Katzbachstrasse is not only known beyond Kreuzberg's "city limits" because of its unusual name. The S-Bahn and U-Bahn station Yorckstrasse will quickly take you to Potsdamer Platz, Friedrichstrasse or the rest of Mitte in no time. Also Schöneberg is just a stone's throw away.
You can spend your lunch break ideally at the Gleisdreieck park, which has meanwhile become a cultural, recreational and, through LOK 6, also a culinary stronghold.
The Viktoriapark is located diagonally opposite the Katzbachstrasse 5, and here you will find a green lung including a beer garden, stadium and waterfall. Also the pulse of the well-known Kreuzberg with Bergmannstrasse, Marheineke market hall and institutions such as Curry 36 and Mustafa's Gemüse Kebap is just a few minutes' walk away.
