A leafy existence amidst urban density: a multi-unit building is being created in Kaiser-Friedrich-Straße in Berlin’s Charlottenburg district, its façade draped in greenery. The three inner courtyards of the seven-story building have likewise had nature added in the form of pre-embedded balcony gardens 60 centimetres deep, which can be planted according to residents’ wishes. And so high-quality residential housing is created in a Wilhelminian neighbourhood. The façade is divided in a regular way, with broad loggias made of brightly pigmented concrete and room-high glazing facing courtyards. The ‘Cologne-green’ of the steel railings backs up the basic concept of greenery, while offering a symbolical wave from the city on the Rhine to the German capital.
In total, 5,000 square meters of residential property with apartments ranging from 35 to 125 square meters are being made ready for immediate occupancy. Five regular upper floors and four penthouse suites on the sixth floor take over from the ground-floor apartments with their direct access to the greenified inner courtyard. The ground plans with their large living and dining areas can be designed individually.
