This newly renovated "Altbau" has a very deliberately designed floor plan. The cozy hallway leads directly into the bathroom, into the living room/study and into the kitchen, from which one reaches the bedroom. The rooms have beautiful proportions, in the form of height, width, depth and thus create this typical Altbau-feeling. The large, high window formats and the double-wing doors out onto the balcony fit perfectly.
The apartment shows the ideal combination of old and new. Historic details such as box-type windows, solid wood doors with ornamented door frames, brass handles on windows and doors, stucco and solid wood flooring have been preserved and lovingly restored. The balcony railing also perfectly reflects this design approach. The bathroom and fitted kitchen are modern and present themselves in contemporary design. The colors of the walls are limited to muted, modern colors: white, light gray and savanna. These correspond well with the white oiled planks. As a result, the apartment appears very bright and inviting and receives the typical ambience that is known from Scandinavia. In contrast to this are the black furnishing elements in the kitchen, the shelf and the tabletop.
Overall, this restrained, reduction-oriented design philosophy creates a unique harmony of colors and materials, and comes very close to the ideal - less is more. Individual freedom of action is guaranteed without having to be experienced as disruptive factors.
The house is a typical Wilhelminian building. Striking are the beautiful lattice windows as well as the numerous, equally shaped balconies with the Art Nouveau railings, which are also holder for planters. At that time one wanted to preserve a uniform appearance even after the inhabitants' greening.
The front door and the ornaments in the hallway also feature Art Nouveau characteristics. The apartment door also shines in old beauty. The avenue trees and the inner courtyard, which is planted with huge trees, ensure a pleasant microclimate, especially in summer. The house and the apartment show the aesthetics of old houses, and how today to live in them in a contemporary and attractive way.
The Böhmische Strasse is the epitome of Neukölln: it is situated in the Richardkiez, a quiet and ever popular neighborhood in the heart of Rixdorf, one of the oldest districts of Berlin (16th-17th century). It is characterized by old buildings, and yet at the pulse of time thanks to internationally known restaurants (Hallmann and Klee), in-bars such as the Rotbart, or the Sonnenallee, which is increasingly becoming the Torstrasse of 2019. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle, you have the almost rural Comenius garden around the corner. Shops are 5 minutes away by foot and the metro station Karl-Marx-Strasse can be reached in 8 minutes and the S-Bahn station Sonnenallee in 10 minutes by foot.
