This architect's apartment is located on the 21st floor and offers a breathtaking view over Berlin. It impresses with the absolutely special details, which already caused a stir during the planning and that happily were preserved. Glass cupboards with hatch as an interesting visual link between the kitchen and dining area, original wardrobes and original doors, which all have been preserved and renovated - and are therefore already a classic.
Everything is designed in black and white: the white marble slab with gray grain as a countertop in the kitchen, the black natural stone tiles (Carrara marble) in the entrance, the dark cashmere goat hair carpet from Tretford, as well as the completely white tiled bathroom with white objects. This design concept has also been retained in the interior design. Only reputable designers were used. The lights are manufactured by Manufactum, Droog and Benno Premsela. The furniture has a signature of Vitra, Kartell and is mixed with young designers from the Netherlands as well as old vintage classics.
The floor plan was optimally designed. From the hallway with smart storage space, you can access each room individually; first is the bedroom with large window fronts, a spacious built-in closet and skylight. Next to it is the high-quality bathroom with shower bath. To the right opens up to the large living and dining area with adjoining balcony (about 8 square meters). From here you can let your eyes wander over Berlin at any time of the day.
In sum: living in a skyscraper with everything that belongs to it - elevator, reception with concierge and security - a central, representative home for exclusive people.
The residential tower dates back to the early 70s and has 22 floors, making it totally unique in this very location. From the balcony you can see far down to the east of the city, over the Alexander Tower and the Red Town Hall to the east, because nothing blocks the view. Initially, the building was built for officials of the former GDR and offered compact apartments with two to four rooms. At the time, the apartments were state-of-the-art, mainly because of the flexible floor plans. In particular, modernists love these apartments and would never change them to an apartment with a stucco ceiling.
As Mitte as it can get: You can already today experience what tomorrow's trend will be. In no time you are on Friedrichstrasse, the Gendarmenmarkt or on the Spree. Known classics like the Borchardt or the Grill Royal, but also new discoveries like the bar Freundschaft or the Restaurant Beba in the Gropius Bau are all within walking distance. Culturally there is hardly a better location in Germany - theater, concert hall, State Opera, German Historical Museum, etc. are all in the immediate vicinity. And if you want to escape the city one day you are everywhere in no time: 11 minutes to the main station, 26 minutes to TXL and 42 minutes to Potsdam.
