Palais Varnhagen - the Bohème returns to Mitte. No other building like this wonderful, designed by the British architect David Chipperfield city palace in a prime location of Berlin Mitte, just a few meters from the Gendarmenmarkt, leaves the typical Berlin salon culture again.
Salon living developed in many European cities at the beginning of the 19th century. In the stately premises of many bourgeois dwellings, intellectuals, artists and industrialists met to exchange views. One of the most dazzling figures in Berlin at that time was the eponym of the Palais Varnhagen - Rahel Varnhagen. She invited to her "Literary Salon" in the French street 20 until about 1927 and was host to many famous personalities such as Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia, Heinrich Heine, the family Mendelssohn, Wilhelm von Humboldt and August Wilhelm Schlegel. More than 90 years later, the Palais Varnhagen in this historic location with its generous salon apartments offers the perfect stage to return to the salon life of the past.
The approximately 89sqm apartment is located on the 3rd floor of the front building of the Palais Varnhagen. The location in the front building and the south / south-west orientation allows the premises to benefit from the best sunshine. The very generously dimensioned glass sliding windows can be easily operated and give a view of the inner-city life and the high garden in the 2nd level freely. The approximately 43sqm large living area with an open kitchen is the heart of the apartment. Due to the opening of the façade of the front building and the associated floor plan, the living area has two large windows.
The two bedrooms are directly from the entrance / hall area to commit. The internal bathrooms are directly opposite. The partially installed sliding doors with bronze fittings represent an intelligent room solution. The choice of materials in the apartment can be described with high-quality, elegant and timeless. Classic panel parquet with border friezes and bright travertine Natural stone, combined with color-coordinated mosaic tiles, characterize the materiality of the apartment. Underfloor heating, solar control glazing, video intercom and a concierge service complete the high quality amenities.
