There are so many interesting aspects to this home, it’s hard to choose which to focus on. The building itself is clad with burnt wood and dark blue metal panels – there to reflect the site’s former space observatory. All the surfaces within the building are raw and honest, such as the exposed concrete, which shows the scars of construction. Sadly, this studio apartment is small, and the concrete columns within make it even more cramped. Nonetheless, this home is ideally located close to some of Berlin’s best attractions, such as the Jewish Museum and the Martin-Gropius-Bau.
Home truths: *This is a studio apartment, so the space is rather small, plus the two columns reduce the amount of room even more
*When we visited, there was a lot of construction going on nearby – this should only be a temporary situation, but please be aware that there may be construction noise
*This apartment only has a kitchenette and no oven, only a small microwave, so don’t expect to flex your culinary muscles here
*Be prepared to roll up your sleeves, there is no dishwasher here
*This is a rental unit and lacks that homely touch
*There is no washer/dryer in this unit, but guests can use the building’s communal laundry facility at an extra cost
*There is no sofa
