The first attention of this apartment is its location in an architectural highlight from 2010, thus lying in a historically preserved environment from the early 20th century.
The floor plan meets all the standards that are set for living in today's world. On a small hallway adjoins a walk-in closet with practical sliding doors. From here you enter the spacious living/kitchen/dining area which has two French balconies, and a classic balcony facing southeast. Thus, one can also have breakfast outside during summer time or comfortably enjoy the newspaper. Shadows and some chill can be provided by the electrically operated sunshades that run outside the windows.
The fully equipped kitchen in plain white with lilac highlights and the central kitchen block offer plenty of storage space and allow for optimal communication between chef and spectator.
The bedroom is very spacious and has a long wall unit space for a wardrobe and other personal items. Adjacent to the bedroom is a closable storage room for washing machine, dryer and other little things. Over a small corridor one can reach the bathroom with shower and toilet.
The interior design meets the highest standards. High rooms of almost 3 meters and floor-to-ceiling, wall-high window elements, which could rather be called glass walls, immerse the apartment in bright light. The white color on the smoothly plastered walls, window frames, kitchen elements, etc. provides the background for color accents that you set yourself. The warm wooden floor (solid oak) and the entrance door, also made of wood, provide a harmonious balance with the reduction of the color concept. The bathroom, with its large, anthracite-colored tiles, the white of the objects and the chrome fittings, blends harmoniously into the design concept.
This is a unique apartment in its historical environment, which you will rarely find - a state-of-the-art living experience at the highest level in a charming ambience.
Other highlights include underfloor heating, a lift (completely barrier-free), a storage space in the basement and an optional underground parking space at Pappelallee 25 (reachable within 3 minutes) for 62,000 euros.
The building is a striking example of contemporary architecture with the highest standards of design. Characteristic are the bay-like, rhythmically arranged projections and recesses in the facade, sometimes open, sometimes closed. This creates a varied interplay of vertical and horizontal lines. The brick base guarantees longevity without signs of aging and leaves the upper part of the building almost floating. The restriction of materials to glass, plaster and zinc sheet emphasize the stringent formality.
Inside you will experience a high-tech ambience. The stairwell with its colored steel railing and the anthracite-gray stone floor is in its perfection the expression of high design and execution standards. Opposed to the reduced atmosphere, large, high, almost dignified apartment doors with asymmetric frames, made entirely of wood come in. Here again in the material selection, the principle of cool, factual, strict against warm, comfortable, sensual.
With this choice of form, color and material, the building sets a modern exclamation point in an otherwise historicist environment. This type of architecture skillfully combines perfection, rationality, simplicity with contrasts, accents and emotions - architecture that is without comparison.
The Lychener Strasse is located in the middle of Helmholtzkiez - lovingly called "Helmi". The tree-lined street does not only host the best Japanese of the city - Sasaya - but the Helmholtzplatz lines chic cafes (Café Liebling!), sophisticated restaurants (Berlin's first hors d'oeuvre restaurant Bricole) and casual parents and students together and makes the quarter extremely relaxed: life and livelihood is a top priority - because around the ping-pong tables at the Helmi everybody lines up in the evening, no matter whether new or old "Berliner".
If you want to get away, take the tram 12 or M1 and roll down to Mitte. From the nearby subway station Eberswalder Strasse and S-Bahn station Schönhauser Allee you can reach the main train station within 14 minutes and Tegel Airport in 21 minutes.
