In the middle of what is probably the liveliest part of Berlin, architect Cornelia Ernst has created a very special gem in collaboration with the building owner. Shapes and surfaces are reduced to their essentials and look like a work of art.

Minimalism is the main theme of this property: no fittings or handles disturb the effect of surface, color and form. The oiled oak floorboards harmonize with the wooden elements made of glazed oak on the walls, while the restrained colour scheme creates maximum elegance.

As you enter this unique top floor, you are greeted by the long section of an L-shaped corridor with a strip of windows along the entire length of the ceiling allowing daylight to flood in. Guided by the light, you reach an open space at the end of this part of the hallway, where you will find the kitchen and dining area on the right.

From here, floor-to-ceiling, glazed sliding doors lead to the south-west-facing roof terrace. Opposite is an open-plan living room that can be partitioned off by sliding doors. A projector integrated into the ceiling and invisible loudspeakers can transform this room into a movie theater.

A fireplace with viewing panels to both the kitchen and the living room separates and connects this main part of the apartment at the same time. If you go back down the hallway, two bedrooms, a study and two checkrooms are hidden to the right. The shorter part of the hallway leads you to the large bathroom with bath and walk-in shower, the master bedroom and a utility room. The room doors merge with the ceiling-high wooden walls of the hallway made up of individual vertical elements and are only recognizable as such once the push-to-open mechanism has been activated.

Heating is provided by an air-heat pump, which also operates the underfloor heating. Anyone looking for a luxurious retreat in the middle of urban Berlin with a minimalist design will be delighted with this property.
