The seven-storey apartment building marks a corner plot in Berlin's densely built-up inner-city district of Friedrichshain. The building is adjacent to the listed Georgen-Parochial cemetery and benefits from its park-like atmosphere. While the commercial first floor areas are enclosed by the high cemetery wall, the upper floors open up to the street with generously glazed loggias to the south and west. The floor plans thus provide residents with both a connection to the hustle and bustle on the street and a view of the greenery.
The design features a mix of 1.5-room apartments and larger 4-room apartments. All residential units have balconies or terraces. The floor-to-ceiling glazing creates a generous sense of space, especially in combination with the attractive outdoor space.
The storey ceilings are visible in the façade and, together with the continuous railings, give the building a strict horizontal structure.
