Built in 1932, at the height of the Weimar Republic, the building stands as a testament to the time of its creation. Heavily influenced by the prevailing cultural winds of Bauhaus & co., the floor plans are well thought-through and laid-out, while the details include balconies, decorative brick elements and box windows, and wooden flooring throughout the apartments. The building has been completely renovated with a newly designed courtyard and four additional balcony towers. In short, this superb property combines the charm and quality of an Altbau with the modernist inclinations of Bauhaus, all brought up-to-date.
Britz is the relaxed and grown-up older sibling of ultra-hip neighbouring Neukölln. Lying just south of Neukölln, Britz has more of a neighbourhood feel to it, with numerous local shops, restaurants, cafes, doctors, pharmacies, day nurseries, schools and of course supermarkets. There are also plenty of green spaces nearby, not the least of which is Tempelhofer Feld, the former airfield which is now Berlin’s largest park. Yet Britz is also very well-connected to the rest of the city: the various bus, train and U-bahn lines are ready to whisk you away anywhere you could wish to go. Whether you want to leave Britz at all is another question.
