It is a gem dating back to Imperial Germany, and an asset to Berlin as architectural landmark: Riehmers Hofgarten. At the time, Wilhelm Riehmer let his courage and visionary zeal as builder inspire him to bypass urban planning standards in favour of upscale liveability. Instead of a dense development of tenements grouped around tiny courtyards, he created a magnificent complex on a plot he owned in 1891/1892. With attention to detail and the diligence of a heritage curator, the splendid heritage site has now been largely restored. It positively beams with its regained historic glamour. The patrician façades shine with bright structures while the staircases are dominated by warm earthy colours. The entrance doors to houses and flats, windows and stair railings were overhauled true to their original design. Partially uncovered frescoes on the mezzanine levels illustrate the artful aesthetics of a bygone era. The lighting system as well as the bell and video intercom system complete the authentic design by adding upscale state-of-the-art technology. Water supply lines and waste water pipes were replaced, while heating and electrical installations were upgraded or replaced. The eleven entranceways are named after scions of the Hohenzollern dynasty. The entranceway with the stairway up to the third-floor flats at Grossbeerenstrasse 56 is called Louise. With its two bedrooms on 91 square metres, the flat will enchant anyone who appreciates period buildings, upgraded to modern specifications. Residents of this housing complex have the communal use of the lush courtyard garden whose groomed trails, picnic lawns, boule court and playground offer various options for hanging out and comparing notes. Other amenities include the roofed-over buggy and bicycle park, and access to the underground car park via the courtyard garden. https://www.riehmers-hofgarten-berlin.de/en/ Ambient film: https://youtu.be/a8UpOfCZ4MI
In global city rankings, Berlin has been among the top ten for years. Complex cultural events, an engaging way of life, and a unique history have earned the metropolis its global renown. It motivates millions of visitors every year to come to Berlin to see for themselves. Over the past decade, about 400,000 of them were so captivated by the city that they decided to stay for good. To be sure, a high level of liveability makes it easy to fall in love with Berlin. But the city has so much more to offer. As a science hub, Berlin offers skills and knowledge in just about any scientific field you can think of. Moreover, Germany’s capital of start-up businesses has developed an economic dynamic that attracts companies from inside and outside the country. Its location in the European heartland recommends it as place of business every bit as much as its ability to provide high-skilled graduates and its proximity to the start-up scene with its innovative potential for prospering businesses of tomorrow. In Kreuzberg, the impulsive energy of young generations is keenly felt and reflected in up-and-coming trends. Aside from this district’s centrality and legendary hipness, life here is defined by a highly productive cultural scene and by creative diversity. Especially the Bergmannstrasse has enormous appeal. Every store here is one of a kind—whether it sells wine, pastry or coffee, antique junk, designer artefacts or vintage goods by the pound, gourmet dog food, vegan takeaway food or famous sausages—while the space in between is dotted with cinemas, theatres and churches that occasionally double as concert halls. All of this embedded in a historic setting of streets that are testimony to the cultural heritage of the city. Viktoriapark, Gleisdreieck Park or the vast grasslands of the former Tempelhof airport grounds provide plenty of outdoor space for local recreation and leisure activities.
The attractive 2-bedroom flat welcomes you with the generous proportions that Berlin’s stately front buildings are famous for. Make yourself at home on 91 square metres of a place refurbished in line with heritage conservation guidance. From the entryway of 9 square metres, you access all other rooms, including the two bathrooms. The first room you enter via large double doors is the master bedroom of 20 square metres. Next to is lies the spacious living room of 28 square metres, which faces west. A small hallway connects it to a convenient store room and the 12-square-metre kitchen, which gives you plenty of space to pursue your culinary dreams. In line with heritage guidance, walls and floors were treated with great care, while plaster and ceiling ornaments were painstakingly restored, completed or recreated in their original style. The same goes for the historic parquetry and board floors. Where needed, the herringbone parquet flooring was replaced with new oak elements copying the original. The windows were overhauled as well. The elegant bathroom integrates bathtub and shower into a classy setting of matte black tiles on floors and walls. Only the decorative natural stone tiles above the wash basin disrupt the symmetry. Luxurious fittings and clever ceramic fixtures such as a WC with shower feature, dimmable downlights, wooden vanity substructures with illuminated drawers, and dimmable heated wall mirrors complement the design with purposeful finesse. From radiator to towel rack, each fit-out detail blends with the overall aesthetics. To ensure optimal media connectivity, all internet, phone and TV cables have been replaced. A bolt crossbar lock secures the flat entrance door. Also assigned to the unit are a basement store room and an underground parking spot. The flat is conveniently reached by a lift.
