UNIQUE, REIMAGINED DESIGNER LOFT
This unique apartment skilfully stages elements of historical buildings with the most sophisticated contemporary design. Completely renovated and architecturally designed to a very high standard, the result is a surprisingly creative contrast of old and new.
With an open plan and flexible layout, the front area can be used as a main bedroom, working or extended living area. Lots of light falls into this area thanks to the floor-to-ceiling window leading out onto the generously sized two-way balcony. A cutting-edge luxury bathroom meets every need: a walk-in double shower (with rain shower head), a separate bathtub - all ceramic items and cabinet suite are by Duravit Vero. All fittings and tapware include the complete Steinberg 120 series luxury range. The imported Italian grey stone tiles are from Prima Materia.
An architecturally designed staircase made of exposed steel with steps made from solid plywood opens up to a mezzanine sleeping area above the bathroom. From here you can observe all areas of the apartment. This second sleeping area is separated from living, working, cooking and eating on the lower floor. The dining area has an off-white kitchen (equipped with Siemens dishwasher, induction hob, washing/drying machine, schott ceran oven/hob, microwave - and separate retro Smeg fridge/freezer) with direct access to the balcony. The living room is fully restored and retains all historical elements of the building - it still has the original stucco, and the restored window faces towards Choriner Strasse. As such, it feels more like a typical front-facing building apartment.
In sum, this apartment shows how the transformation from historical building to the present can succeed in the most sophisticated form. Everything just fits seamlessly together: form and function, colour and material, history and present. This field of tension results in a unique play with contrasts and shapes.
FURNITURE & FITTINGS
The degree to which the interior design, fittings and furniture has been carefully selected and integrated into the overall design is outstanding.

The apartment is located in the highly sought-after and famous bicycle street Choriner Strasse, which connects Torstrasse in Mitte with Schönhauser Allee in Prenzlauer Berg. From here you have a direct view of the Kulturbrauerei with its many cultural facilities. Within walking distance lies a vast array of restaurants, creative stores with fashion, accessories, interior design and much more. Nearby attractions include Kollwitzplatz; the architectural highlight Stadtbad Oderberger Strasse, as well as the world-famous Mauerpark with its Sunday market and entertainment offering plenty of green space for exercising, walking or simply relaxing.
