This 175 square-meter (1,888 square-foot) loft apartment is located in a typical tenement building from the early 20th century in Berlin, Germany. The project by Club Marginal Architekten offers plenty of natural light, views of the surrounding roofscape and an outdoor Jacuzzi.
A generously sized hallway ensures easy access to all the functional areas of the apartment. The complex layout is centered around an open plan living and dining room that connects to the terrace. A minimalist design approach with integrated storage solutions makes the place feel airy and spacious.
The owners’ bedroom was planned in the most quiet corner of the attic loft. An all-white color scheme makes the room larger than it truly is; at the same time it encourages reflection and relaxation, as one can only hear the sound of the neighboring trees.
“Along the outside area of the apartment, one continues over a staircase leading to the upper terrace,” the architects explained. “Having arrived at the top one has a 360°-view over the roofs of Friedrichshain. One can spend the evening hours here enjoying the panorama of Berlin, ideally in the whirlpool, accommodating up to four people.” Photography credits: Roland Unterbusch
