The ornamental building on Sebastianstraße at the corner of Luckauer Straße, which was constructed between 1848 and 1853, is one of the oldest buildings in Berlin and thus survived not only two wars but also German division and reunification. With the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, Sebastianstraße was divided: The houses with the house numbers 1 to 3 belonged thereafter to East Berlin, while the houses 81 to 87 on the opposite side were assigned to West Berlin. Today, the excellently preserved old building is a listed building and bears witness like no other to the durability and aesthetic sophistication of historical building perfection.
Filigree stucco ornamentation, ornate cornices and detailed brackets: The ornamental façade of this magnificent building, which can be lived in, catches everyone's eye. An imposing impression that continues in the staircase on Sebastianstraße. Here, original, richly decorated wooden doors with metal ornaments meet impressive stucco marble walls. Two commercial units and a bicycle room are located in the basement. The other floors are occupied by vacant and rented 2- to 5-room apartments ranging in size from 51 to 147 square meters. The fact that historical architecture and modern comfort can go hand in hand is proven by the renovation of the facade in accordance with the preservation order, the redesign of the Luckauer Strasse staircase and the planned construction of a balcony tower. The architectural design of the staircase is being undertaken by none other than the renowned architect Stephanus Schmitz, who has already made a name for himself in the context of many other projects in and around Berlin. However, not only the common areas, but also the apartments themselves will mostly be extensively renovated and adapted to the needs of their future residents.
