Architectural gem in the trendy Neukölln district
Neukölln is one of Berlin’s up-and-coming boroughs, and the fact is reflected in the growing number of people moving there. The diversity and dynamics of northern Neukölln attract young people in particular. Families, by contrast tend to move to the southern part, close to the city limits, for the green and tranquil part of the borough.
But let’s take a closer look at the north, at the section of Silbersteinstrasse between Hermannstrasse and the “Neukölln” rapid transit station, to be exact. On a corner plot where Silbersteinstrasse meets Hertastrasse, a modern multi-unit dwelling is under development that will meet all needs of contemporary living. The flats to be created on six floors will range from 1 to 4 bedrooms and from 25 to 124 square metres in size and will have high-end, stylish interior fit-outs.
The compelling thing about all of the flats is their bright and spacious character which is attributable to the floor-to-ceiling windows and the generous floor plans with their open-plan eat-in kitchens. The cosy ambience makes the latter the perfect place for good times with family and friends. The living areas will be surfaced with real-wood parquetry in warm earthy colours that range from rustic oak to natural white, while the walls will be rendered in white. Overall, the flats will exude a timeless elegance.
Bright Light and Home Amenities on Each Floor
Most flats will have one or even two balconies, which in some cases will be accessible from several rooms. In other flats, the floor-length windows will combine with balconettes in the form of picket railings.
Each flat combines aspirational design with safety engineering requirements.
Every room is equipped with a smoke detector while the door entry systems of the flats feature video intercom. The bathrooms, which will have tub and shower both, will be decorated with high-end wall and floor tiles in a selection of modern hues. Floor-level showers and flat panel heated towel rail are typical for contemporary bathroom design. Some flats include a guest bathroom and a store room for extra storage space.
Moreover, a dedicated basement store room is allocated to each flat. Residents share the use of a bicycle storage room and a buggy park. The plans also call for 18 underground parking spots in the basement. A lift serves all floors of the residential building.
Above the Rooftops of Berlin
A particular highlight of the building are its three attic flats. The apartments of 2 to 4 bedrooms share the same fit-out features and are stunning with their roof terraces that provide a magnificent view across the city and the skyline of Berlin. Superior home amenities on 70 to 124 square metres combine with a quiet ambience in the heart of a vibrant neighbourhood.
Like an antidote to the anonymity of urban life, the roof of the apartments building with its bright brick façades will feature an extensively greened common-part area with handsome decking that will serve as a place for congregating and letting your eyes roam across the city skyline through the glazed parapet. Treat yourself to something special!
