This 3-room apartment in an old neo-classical building is located on the 2nd floor of the side wing. The location facing the green inner courtyard ensures peace, relaxation, light and sun with a view of the treetops. The characteristics of historic old buildings can be enjoyed here in an absolutely authentic way. 3.38 m high ceilings, room sizes between 18 and 21 m² ensure pleasant room proportions. The beautiful rooms naturally also have the typical windows, designed as box windows, variably designed as two-winged, three-winged and double-winged window plus two-winged balcony door. What they have in common is the grid of the bars, intelligently structured by means of arched formwork in order to take up the arched shape of the windows facing the street.
Furthermore, the rooms naturally also live from the freshly reconditioned wooden floor made of planks or as herringbone parquet. A large opening visually connects the dining room and living room.
In addition to the old floor coverings, the windows, door frames, etc., the cast iron radiators are also eye-catching in their authenticity. All rooms are accessed from the hall. The historical door frames including the door leaves were brought to their raw state by means of lye.
This "rough" appearance is intentional as a contrast to the smooth plastering of the walls and the stucco frieze on the ceiling. A narrow niche extends the hallway and offers space for the small, beautiful things.
The kitchen and bathroom have also been redesigned and feature today's technology and design. Blue glass mosaic tiles on the corner bathtub or an ornamental tile mirror also in shades of blue in the kitchen set colored accents in the otherwise white ambience. These include bathroom objects, wall tiles or kitchen fronts. The floors take up the color of the wooden floors in small formats in the bathroom and in larger formats, darker in the kitchen. Playful elements form two niches in the kitchen, one for sitting and the other for storing carefully selected little things, such as herbs or other pretty details.
On 81 m² you can experience an old building feeling in the most beautiful form, without having to forego today's demands on comfort.
Of course, the balcony is also part of it, so that you can greet the wonderful morning sun outside in spring and summer.
For example, a storage room offers space for vacuum cleaners, suitcases, shoes, etc., i.e. for everything that you otherwise don't know where to put it. So the apartment can always stay tidy and tidy. The interplay of colors, materials and surfaces and the targeted contrasts can be experienced in its aesthetics every day in an uncomplicated way.
Beauty and function in a historical guise are merged into a skilful symbiosis.
The fitted kitchen including washing machine is equipped with Neff and Siemens appliances. A large basement room and a shared bicycle storage room offer additional storage space. The garbage is also conveniently placed in the basement.
The art comes from Sammlung1310 and can optionally be part of the inventory.
The neoclassical old building was completely renovated, whereby great importance was attached to the preservation of the historical structures and building elements. As a result, the building shines in all its splendor from the outside.
The variants of window shapes, balcony shapes with basket arches, brick parapets and metal railings with integrated flower pot holders and the bay windows result in this varied picture. The large avenue trees and the narrow strip of green complete this beautiful overall picture.
But you only experience the highlight inside! A small fountain with Art Nouveau ceramics awaits us here. Seahorses, lobster tongs, etc. frame the water-spouting head framed by mosaic tiles. A large skylight provides shadow-free illumination of this outstanding entrance, which of course also includes the wall ceramics, the wooden panels and the terrazzo floor.
An experience like visiting a castle, only daily to your own four walls. This experience continues in the stairwell with its wooden railing and the polished, partly colored glass windows, which are reminiscent of church windows. Here, too, an experience like in a museum, noise-dampened by a classic sisal runner. Another visual and technical eye-catcher is the elevator with historical details.
Here, too, the renovation focused on preserving the beauty of the building fabric, which was lovingly supplemented with reference to what was already there. The result here too - splendid. A daily feast for the eyes, the way to the house through the front door into the entrance to the stairwell to your own apartment door. The residents enjoy this aesthetic and ensure that everything stays that way. You feel good here, you can be at home here because everything is consistent!
The neighborhood south of Ku'Damm exudes a true Wilmersdorf attitude towards life. Within a 4-minute walk you are in the midst of the hustle and bustle of West Berlin's most popular shopping mile.
