The project consists of a 7‑storey perimeter block development with a spacious and green inner courtyard. The inner courtyard with its sufficient play and recreation areas is exclusively reserved for the residents. The architectural language takes up the classic town house rules of the historical Berlin building block and combines them with a contemporary abstraction to create a link to the surrounding large historical buildings, which integrate the project into the current urban context. High-quality natural stones provide the anchorage of the base in the urban space and the clear facade structures support the representative character of the ensemble.
With more than 3.6 million inhabitants, Berlin is the most populated city in Germany and, at 892 km², the largest city in terms of area. Thanks to its excellent infrastructure, its advantageous geographical location within Europe and its high quality of life, the metropolis has become a popular location for investments, international companies and housing. This is also noticeable in the real estate market where Berlin maintains its sole as a magnet for many people from around the world seeking to live or invest in Berlin, which contributes to the on-going increase in the level of migration into the city.
The project is named after Winterfeldtplatz, which is a few minutes’ walk away and where Berlin’s largest weekly market is held. Numerous bars, restaurants and cafés around the adjacent streets invite you to linger and paint a picture of the Nollendorf and Winterfeldt neighbourhood. Small shops for selected clothing, flowers, gifts and furnishings line up in the immediate vicinity in the Akazienkiez, creating a pleasant, lively atmosphere in this residential area.
The project benefits not only from its central location within Berlin, but also from the excellent public transport connections. From the nearby underground stations Nollendorfplatz, Bülowstraße and Kleistpark, the underground lines U1, U2, U3, U4 and U7 lead to all parts of the city, so that the Zoologischer Garten, Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz can be reached in a short time.
Many galleries and artists have settled along Bülow and Potsdamer Strasse, contributing to the strong cultural development and offering a wide range of activities. If you follow the latter, you will quickly reach the Kulturforum with the Neue Nationalgalerie and finally reach Potsdamer Platz with all its shopping and event facilities.
In the City West the KaDeWe at Wittenbergplatz and the prominent Kurfürstendamm with all kinds of retail outlets and sights such as the “Gedächtniskirche” and the Berlin Zoo are all a short distance away.
