THE BEST from alt und new

Built in 1905 and extensively modernised in 2023, the five-storey apartment building at Urbanstrasse 5 in Berlin-Kreuzberg houses a total of 15 residential units as well as a commercial unit on the ground floor and offers areas between 50 sqm – 167 sqm. In addition to insulating the existing façade with a thermal insulation finishing system, high-quality timber and aluminium windows with thermal insulation glazing in a contemporary design not only make for additional energy savings, but also tasteful aesthetics.

To preserve the highly sought after Altbau style, the charm typical of the architectural period was not only retained in the staircases, but entirely reinvigorated. The ornate wooden banisters and entrance doors received a fresh coat of paint and the entrance hall was newly tiled, the walls smoothed and repainted. Existing balconies were renovated, received new steel guardrails and the side building now benefits from the addition of elevated balconies.

The flats in the front building are accessible via the addition of a new, attached lift to the existing staircase on the courtyard side. By constructing an additional floor, the building was extended to include two further newly built flats with cutting-edge fittings. Separated from the existing flats, these flats each have their own electricity-driven geothermal heat pump.

The redevelopment of the inner courtyard, which included the unsealing and greening of the outdoor areas, the creation of a communal space for neighbourly interaction, and the installation of a children’s play area which includes a sandpit, provides a quiet sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life. Minimalist access paths and flat hedges which define the newly created lawns offer residents an exceptional quality of life in an unlikely green city oasis.

CONTEMPORARY, sophisticated and efficient

At Urbanstrasse 5a in Berlin-Kreuzberg, situated in a quiet courtyard, five newly constructed 2 to 4-room KfW 55 standard apartments await their new owners. The six-storey extension to the existing front building is made accessible via a barrier-free access ramp. All apartment entrances and the basement of the new building are served by an interior lift.

Energy saving floor-to-ceiling windows allow daylight to flood the living areas of the 55 sqm – 120 sqm apartments, while the solid, natural glulam timber ceilings ensure a cosy atmosphere. The modern, low-maintenance, heat-and sound insulated screed flooring adds a contemporary atmosphere. An underfloor heating system that can be adjusted room by room keeps your feet warm in the winter months. Heating and hot water are generated by an electrically driven air-to-water heat pump.

With the aid of the tranquil orientation towards the inner courtyard, relaxed, balmy summer evenings can be spent on the spacious balconies, which are over 8 sqm in size and decked with wooden floorboards. Keen amateur gardeners are spoilt with a tap for drawing water on their balconies. The maisonette apartment which covers the 4th and 5th floors also benefits from a terrace measuring over 14 sqm.

The redesigned inner courtyard, with its green outdoor areas, communal space for neighbourly exchanges and children’s play equipment and sandpit, provides a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city.
