The project involves the renovation and complete conversion of an existing row house, which is directly attached to a forest at Glockenturmstrasse 20B in Berlin-Charlottenburg. The external cubature of the house was redesigned by enlarging the facade opening in the living and dining area to create a floor-to-ceiling panorama window. This allows the view from the interior to wander directly into the surrounding green of the forest.
The internal organization of the house was restructured. In the basement, which forms the entry area into the house, are the functional rooms, such as the children’s room, a work area, a storage room and the guest toilet / shower room.
On the upper floor, the open living and dining area forms the center of the house. The far-reaching view to the outside supports the open character of the common room. The bedroom with the spacious master bathroom is separated from the open living area by a dressing area. The open interior staircase, clad in solid oak, merges with the wooden floors in the lower and upper floors thanks to the precisely chosen material, thus creating an optical continuity. It allows the two residential floors to merge into one residential building.
