The living space is divided into 3 rooms, kitchen-living room with work or dining gallery, bathroom, and 2 balconies on both sides of the building. All rooms are directly accessible from a small corridor area.
The location on the 1st floor of the front building, the northeast-southwest orientation, the wide street space with avenue trees, and the green inner courtyard provide an abundance of brightness and sunshine. The views go into the green of the tall trees, so that relaxation can take place within your own four walls in the middle of the Kreuzberg neighbourhood.
In addition to the high ceilings (3.5 m), which create a noble living feeling, the design concept is of course the special feature that distinguishes this apartment. Historical elements have been preserved and in some cases have been given an explicit emphasis on its age by maintaining a raw, untreated appearance. The double-leaf door or the living room wall take on this design approach. This is contrasted by perfectly executed ceilings, walls, and floors. Ceiling-high tiled walls in black and white, smooth plaster also in white, oak parquet flooring laid in a herringbone pattern, lightly coloured historical door panels and skirtings, dark micro-cement flooring in terrazzo look, and a kitchen made of Indian Apple Tree wood with white terrazzo tops. These contrasting characteristics showcase the perfection and precision of modern craftsmanship. Furnishings from SMEG, AEG, Siemens and Caressi, among others.
The bathroom has a special flair due to its elevated position, the black mosaic tiles, and the large, dark glass shower wall. This is underlined by high-quality Italian fittings and a towel radiator in chrome.
This skilful mix of old and new, history and present, morbidity and perfection is the outstanding feature of this old building apartment. This is of course accompanied by quality taste in details. Colours, materials, surfaces etc. are harmoniously and yet excitingly coordinated. Smooth-rough, shiny-matt, colourful-uncoloured can be listed here as parameters.
Here today's trends have been implemented without reservation and with courage. A jewel for people with an affinity for design who appreciate and love the bold and unconventional.
The art nouveau ensemble is located in the Wrangelkiez of Kreuzberg not far from the Spree. The charm of the old building was retained on the outside during the renovation. Façade divisions with window formats, risalit with sweeping gables, attached balconies with stone parapets, etc. bear witness to the original splendour of this building, which shines just as brightly today. By reconstructing old elements such as stucco, floor tiles or hand-painted wall representations, the old condition could be and was restored.
The entrance area with a staircase and entrance door are also testimony of the Art Nouveau, this artistically demanding epoch from the beginning of the 19th century. The eye is virtually delighted by this diversity, similar to how one sees art, and residents and visitors can experience and enjoy this every day.
Other special features include a video intercom system, a bicycle storage basement, a large dry cellar room, and an elevator that stops half a staircase higher.
The Wrangelkiez is one of the most popular neighbourhoods in Berlin; here urbanity and nature meet. On the one hand the pulsating life on Schlesische Strasse with cafés like the 19grams, the Freischwimmer, where you can find the perfect Sunday brunch on the waterfront, or of course the famous Club der Visionäre. If you want to relax, pack your rubber boat or rent one at the Kreuzberg boat rental and chug along the Spree.
Public transport connections are ideal, with the Schlesisches Tor underground station or the Treptower Park S-Bahn station. It takes 22 minutes to the main railway station and around 25 minutes to the finally opened Berlin Brandenburg Airport.
