This exceptionally beautiful property in an old building with original stucco elements can certainly be described as a jewel in its location and immediately impresses with its exquisite furnishings upon entering.
After an intensive core renovation in 2019, the valuable design elements and exquisite furniture, unique materials and a modern sound system were created here in consultation with an interior designer, an architect and the art-savvy owner personalities with exceptional taste to create a home of its own with a distinctive, international flair and technical refinements.
International flair in the middle of Berlin Kreuzberg – unexpected and matching at the same time
Step into this unique 3-room flat with balcony on the first floor of a four-storey building from the Wilhelminian period and be impressed by the perfect symbiosis of noble and rare finishing styles. Well-renowned furnishing components result in a mix of noble, luxurious, edgy, modern, classic, industrial charm and elegant. Contrasting, unexpected and yet fitting at the same time, this flat thus results in an extraordinary interweaving that radiates a feel-good aura.
The total area of 90.5 square metres is spread out with dark strip design parquet flooring, an open-plan living and kitchen area with adjoining bedroom, which can also be accessed from the hallway, as well as the children’s room (or study, guest room or dressing room) and the bathroom, as an oasis from one of the world’s finest hotels.
Everything here has been completely modernised, conceptually thoughtfully equipped and presents itself in as-new, almost uninhabited condition as a unique real estate gem.
Read the detailed features and design elements listing below.
All furnishings and fixtures are of exclusive design quality and curatorially coordinated.
The fitted kitchen is custom-made with brushed brass fronts, a gas cooking range and a green countertop made of Swiss granite, a particularly beautiful natural stone.
The ceiling impresses with its height of over 3 metres and original stucco elements, which were carefully uncovered, reworked and finalised with a special technique to create the current look.
The parquet flooring, newly laid in 2019, was specially tumbled for the vintage look and triple-oiled with open pores.
In the two bedrooms, there are custom-made built-in wardrobes made of white solid wood by a carpenter. The interior convinces with a well thought-out layout and partial lighting.
As a contrast to the light-coloured wall units, brass consoles in the same design as in the kitchen and dark walls in the bedroom and bathroom stand out. These were hand-painted by an artist using a special spatula technique.
The freestanding copper bathtub was made by Devon & Devon and the fittings and other fixtures in the bathroom are by the British fine manufacturer Drummonds, which specialises in the production of luxury bathroom products and is known for its traditional craftsmanship and its use of high-quality materials such as cast-iron metal and marble. The bathroom’s exceptional design is rounded off with two designer washbasins held by a robust mahogany washstand and a truly classic piece, also from Drumnods, the mahogany toilet seat.
Special attention is paid to the silk wallpaper in the bathroom. De Gournay’s hand-painted wallpaper from Shanghai is a luxurious wall covering that is handmade by skilled artisans in Shanghai, China. The wallpapers are made to order and customised according to the client’s specific requirements. Their sealant is water repellent and vapour impermeable.
Custom-made bamboo blinds in the kitchen and bathroom, which can be operated electrically in the bathroom, provide the necessary privacy from the inner courtyard and a cosy atmosphere.
The charm of the 1920s is lent by the antique mirror glass elements installed on a wall in the hallway, as well as the coffers of the sliding door connecting the living room and bedroom.
All light switches are handmade of brass by Lithoss, a Belgian design company known for exclusive light switches and timeless elegance.
The electrical system was concealed in the course of the particularly elaborate refurbishment, and at the same time a SONOS sound system, a wireless speaker system known for its high sound quality, ease of use and integration with other digital devices and services, was installed.
For the added cosiness factor in the living and sleeping areas, custom-made curtains made of fine silk and high-quality cotton, double-stitched, ensure complete blackout on request.
Some additional furnishings and design elements can also be added on request:
– The three lights above the dining table are from the Czech glass manufacturer Lasvit and are mouth-blown. They come from the Neverending Glory collection, which reflects nostalgic emotions and reinterprets the magnificent chandeliers of past eras in a new and completely original way. The individual silhouettes symbolise the historic and timeless chandeliers of five world-famous theatres: La Scala in Milan, the Palais Garnier in Paris, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and the Estates Theatre in Prague. Light and iconic, they adapt to any context with class and elegance.
– The chairs around the dining table are made by the German furniture manufacturer Freifrau, which specialises in the production of chairs, armchairs and benches. The chairs by Freifrau are characterised by their minimalist and elegant design.
