19th Century Berlin House Becomes Contemporary With Renovation

asdfg Architekten completed the renovation of a 19th century Berlin house in one of the most popular neighborhoods of the city. The challenge was to reconstruct the facade to look like the home’;s original 1844 depiction, and replan the former police station and a workshop building for modern living.



After completion of the project, the house has an open layout for the main room with a kitchen, dining and living areas. Sleeping galleries separate from the rest of the house with sliding doors.

Keeping only one interior wall, the architects completely reshaped the inner workings of the building in close partnership with the clients themselves. The result is interesting and unexpected as most historical buildings with modern interiors tend to be.

Light pink brick stands exposed in the majority of rooms, creating the atmosphere of history and heritage. Narrow doorways feed the same vibe, but don’;t keep the rooms dark. Numerous windows, including a few skylights, do a terrific job filling the house with daylight that bounces off white floors and design elements.

Unusual lighting makes for perfect accents in the busy brick-walled interiors. In the kitchen it takes form of half cut wine bottles, while above the staircase hangs an oblong soap bubble, or so it seems. (Photography by Michael Pfisterer)
