Condominiums using prefabricated building systems, Berlin

The new building in timber construction is hidden in a quiet side street not far from the main shopping street in Berlin’s Zehlendorf district. Fourteen flats are spread over two buildings, some of which are maisonettes. The buildings take up the topography of the site and are situated at different heights, which are bridged by designated walkways in the outdoor area. Similar in cubature and design, the buildings are made up of diagonally placed, shifted cubes. The top storey is added as a solitaire and surrounded by generous roof terraces. The buildings are offset to each other and define a common entrance situation. The light-coloured rendered façade alternates with wooden slats at the balconies and on the top floor, which are a playful reference to the use of prefabricated building systems.
