This 150 square meter apartment is on the 5th floor of a Wilhelminian style building in the (quiet) trendy district of Prenzlauer Berg.
Here, a former roof blank was redesigned into a loft-like apartment with room heights of up to 3.10 m. The various outdoor areas (a south-facing terrace, a balcony and a rooftop terrace) deserve special attention. Single-leaf or multi-leaf balcony doors open up these outdoor spaces and ensure generous incidence of light, as do the skylights.
An external spiral staircase leads up to the approximately 31 sqm roof terrace, the highlight of this apartment. Here you can experience the sky over Berlin and enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view over the roofs of Berlin to the television tower on Alexanderplatz.
In addition to the views and an extraordinary brightness, the apartment impresses with a differentiated nuanced color in all rooms. A warm beige-brown tone corresponds with a pale gray-green tone, which is reflected in the kitchen fronts. These colors harmonize ideally with the natural wood of the oak floorboards, which was soaped slightly white based on the example of the Scandinavian living style.
Technically, the Neff oven and the Bora exhaust air system, the innovation for contemporary, odorless cooking, deserve special mention. Further highlights are the underfloor heating, electric sun protection blinds, the air conditioning as well as a separate heating (gas) from the rest of the house.
The bathrooms have gray, large-format tiles, to which the white ceramic elements and the chrome fittings form a classic contrast. Bathtub and rain shower are of course included here. The uniformly smooth plastered walls, the floorboards in almost all rooms and the lack of thresholds between the rooms gave this apartment this spacious flair. The same color of the skirting boards convey the impression of the height of the rooms, "loft feeling at its best".
So you can breathe a sigh of relief in the middle of Berlin, take a breath, get away from the hustle and bustle, with the knowledge that you can immerse yourself in urbanity at any time.
A fireplace with all-round glazing creates atmosphere. In winter, beautiful evenings by the fireplace, in summer on the top terrace, fantastic sunsets with a nice drink - a unique quality of life in everyday life that is seldom found.
The building, which dates back to 1900, has the typical features of this architectural era: large, high window formats, rhythmically arranged, bay windows and balconies with metal railings that integrate devices for flower pots, narrow cleaning bottles, set off in white from the subdued ocher plaster. The overall appearance is extremely well-kept and also lives from the environment, which is also characterized by historicist facades. This results in the incomparable ambience that characterizes Prenzlauer Berg. Historic architecture with high-quality apartments in which hip singles, couples and families live.
Prenzlauer Berg has always been the trendy district of East Berlin. In the past, it was wild with squatters, artists and punks, today a bit quieter but still with many trendy shops, greenery en masse and great old buildings. Isländische Strasse is part of the Scandinavian Quarter, which is located around the popular Arnimplatz. You can get the most delicious espresso in the morning at Café Kraft, and go shopping either in the nearby Rewe or Veganz. If you prefer to be cooked for, you should definitely try the Kohlquelle restaurant (the most delicious Maultaschen in Berlin). Those who want to exercise afterwards are in good hands in the nearby Mauerpark.
You are ideally connected by the Bornholmer Strasse S-Bahn station (4 minutes 'walk) and the Schönhauser Allee underground station (an 11 minutes' walk). Or you just jump into a car sharing car of your choice, of which there are plenty in this district.
