Set among lovingly landscaped green areas is this classic factory building originally built during the so-called 'Gründerzeit', the 19th-century economic boom that swept Europe to leave its mark on the cities of today with a wealth of distinctive architecture. Fast-forward a good century and a half and we find this property located in the trendy district of Prenzlauer Berg, straddling the neighbourhoods of the Winskiez and the Bötzowviertel. A special feature of the property is the combination of historic industrial charm with modern living comfort: brick walls, broad rooms, high ceilings and steel girders. Architect Jochen Klein – who has directed the extraordinary architectural projects of Daniel Libeskind in the German-speaking world since 2000 – has broken up the original floor plans to create loft-like, flowing residential spaces. Round arches on windows and doors typical of factory buildings have been preserved. 41 apartments plus 2 commercial units are distributed over the property as a whole, with floor plans comprising two to five rooms and measuring between 66 and 284 m². Also included are generously apportioned, stepped rooftop terraces, loggias and balconies with garden areas.
Prenzlauer Berg is one of the most popular residential areas of Berlin. Young people and families in particular are attracted to this district of Berlin, which, with around 157,000 inhabitants in an area of almost eleven square kilometres, is one of the most densely populated quarters of the capital. Good infrastructure, a village feel, and a youthful vibe contribute to a neighbourhood so attractive for young families that baby carriages are a common sight on the streets. Not to mention that the residential atmosphere in this district is particularly beautiful, with the area representing one of the largest gatherings of Wilhelminian-style buildings in Germany, fronting numerous charming squares and quiet streets.
Yet Prenzlauer Berg is not only popular with its inhabitants – it's also a tourist magnet. Numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as clubs, galleries and theatres attract residents and visitors alike, especially to the areas around Helmholtzplatz and Kollwitzplatz. In order to create highly sought-after living space, the last few vacant lots in Prenzlauer Berg will gradually be closed and exclusive housing projects will be created.
