Description submitted by the project team. New apartment block with underground parking. Given the increasing housing shortage and rising rents, the question of how more living space can be developed in Berlin is pressing. Our new six-storey building, built on around 240 square metres of a garden plot on Charlottenburg’s Fasanenstrasse, has created around 1,100 square metres of new living space right in the city centre.

Plant – Site

The solid construction was added to an existing fire wall. Large windows and balconies open the apartments onto a park-like landscaped grounds. The light grey-green plaster of the façade on the upper floors, the mica-green metal railings and window frames and the exposed concrete on the ground floor correspond calmly with the green of the surrounding trees and the historic exposed brick fire wall of the neighbouring building. Together with the large windows, these elements create a friendly and bright atmosphere that can also be felt inside the 15 apartments and the large loft-like penthouse with a terrace and views over the rooftops. We have deliberately contrasted the raw charm of the load-bearing walls and concrete ceilings with the finely levelled light partitions. Along with fitted kitchens and floor-to-ceiling doors, built-in furniture appears, offering residents many opportunities to organise their spaces. The new building and the existing front volume were renovated and adapted to the colour scheme of the new building. Together they form an ensemble connected by the fire wall.

Fasanenstraße is a street almost two kilometres long in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district. Fasanenstraße has borne its current name since 1901 in memory of a pheasantry established by King Frederick II in 1755 at the end of the present thoroughfare. A special feature of Fasanenstraße are the villas and terraced houses, some of which are still preserved today, which – like the Literaturhaus and Villa Grisebach – stand out from the typical Berlin block structure. This type of housing development, which seems atypical for the city centre today, was also located on the property at Fasanenstraße 36 at that time. After the original street-side building was destroyed by war damage, a postmodern apartment block was built here in the 1980s which, contrary to the previous building typology, now closes the edge of the block at this point. Following the land use plan of 1958/60, which is still in force today, the landscaped plot behind was not further densified and only an underground car park was built.

In line with the desired and increasing re-densification of the West Berlin block structure, we were commissioned by the owner to develop the idea of ​​building a new multi-storey residential building on the garden plot and were ultimately able to convince the planning office of the project. One of the biggest challenges was the difficult development of the building site. The existing front building had (and still does not have) no access to the property, only access via the underground car park. Both the demolition of the old underground car park and the logistics of the entire new building therefore had to be organised above and below the front building.
