Apartment SCH51

Berlin 2018

Turning a factory loft with a heritage listed
façade into a comfortable home for a
family, yet retaining the historic character
- that was the challenge for this property
in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
A decorative cube made of oak forms
the centerpiece, which skilfully exploits
the ceiling height, accommodates the
spacious master bathroom, and creates
both storage space and room structure.
By analogy, a floor-to-ceiling sliding
door separates the living area from the
work area, leaving the loft permeable
and allowing for retreat spaces. The new
structures, consciously placed as exhibits
in the factory floor, respect the factory
character, which is also preserved
by exposed brick walls and an industrial
floor.
In contrast, a lot of wood, the brass fittings
in the kitchen and bathroom, and
hand-made rosé tiles create a cosy atmosphere.
