Text description provided by the architects. BERLINRODEO, a Berlin-based interior concepts office shared with us their renovation and conversion of a Wilhelminian apartment. More images and architect's description after the break.
The apartment, designed by for a young art collectors family, is located in Berlin Tiergarten by the river Spree. Faced with challenge of transforming an older apartment into a contemporary space is difficult enough, but the practice also had to take into account the client's need for plenty of space to accommodate an art collection.
The results showcase a perfect balance of respecting the wilhelminian-era structure whilst simultaneously including unexpected modern luxury features such as an oversized bathtub. Contemporary taste meets traditional architecture, it can often be a beautiful marriage.
