Property development group Euroboden is realizing a unique residential building at Johannisstraße in Mitte, Berlin's downtown district. J. Mayer H. architects’ design for the building, which will soon neighbour both Museum Island and Friedrichstrasse, reinterprets the classic Berliner residential building with its multi-unit structure and green interior courtyard. The sculptural design of the suspended slat facade draws on the notion of landscape in the city, a quality visible in the graduated courtyard garden and the building's silhouette and layout.

Plans for the ground floor facing the street also include a number of commercial spaces. The generously sized apartments will face south-west, opening themselves to a view of the calm, carefully designed courtyard garden. Spacious, breezy transitions to the outside create an open residential experience in the middle of the city that, thanks to the variable heights of the different building levels, also offers an interesting succession of rooms.

The units’ varying floor plans and layouts indicate a number of housing options; condominiums are organized into townhouses with private gardens, classic apartments or penthouses with a spectacular view of the old Friedrichstadt. The integrated design concept, which incorporates everything from façade to stairwells, elevators to apartment interiors, promises a unique spatial and living experience with an eye to high design.

What a horrible formalism! I´m very sorry for the excecutional planers. That must have been a cost some extra hours of wasted time. Please stop these kind of architects of wasting our environment!
It is absolutly irresponible to further generations of architeccts to let these kind of non-sense beein build! We need more activism against architecture! This is not a economical crisis we are inhabiting, it is a crisis of a system if these kind of buildings are still able to be build!

A nice textured cladding: and the theme continues inside.

Gaudi: "new style??"..^^

Preston Smithson · June 05, 2012

Very interesting modern look here. Given the design and building material I would imagine the home is relatively free of heat from outside. Good for keeping your home cool during the summer.
