In (and on top of) an industrial building from 1905 three hideaways have been developed. One loft and two penthouses, all with a strong, unique character and flooded with light. Every apartment has a distinctive charm and color-scheme, furnished with vintage design objects from different decades of the 20th century. This eclectic style makes every apartment a work of art in its own right. All three are equipped with high-speed internet, underfloor heating, accessible by elevator and located in a secured building.
STADTFLUCHT BERLIN YOUR EXCLUSIVE TEMPORARY HOME.
The Berlin borough of Wedding has now attracted such a great number of artists, authors and other creators that even the New York Times has called it the new it-area -an enormous hub for future potential. Between street art, greenery, typical German „Eckkneipen“, Döner-Kebab and trendy restaurants, rose gardens and galleries this is one of the most authentic and pulsating boroughs of Berlin. The secluded nature of the building allows for a discreet entrance and is ideal for car pick ups.
All properties in the „Stadtflucht“ project have a sustainable philosophy at their core. All materials used have been sourced locally and ecologically if possible. All textiles used, such as the bedding, have been made from certified organic cotton. The vintage furniture makes an additional statement upcycled and refurbished, soulful pieces tell a new story in the Stadtflucht apartments. This timeless, circular concept goes a little deeper as well -through the renovation of existing, old buildings, new life is breathed into historic objects. This careful transformation with great attention to details, where the original fabric is maintained, creates a bridge between old and new, between past and future and simultaneously creates a dialogue between these opposites.
In the future, how and where will we live and work? The topic of sustainable real estate development has long been a focus of Elke Bokelmann and Olaf Minkus. Conserving recources, using climate-positive materials, upcycling, recycling, maintaining biodiverse habitats and supporting artisanal work, together with a high sensibility for aesthetics.
Stadtflucht purchases and rents apartments in old, sometimes ruined buildings and restores them in symbiosis with the environment and historic preservation. Bokelmann and Minkus renew the old, consciously transfer history into the present and curate visionary interiors, considering sustainability to the greatest possible extent.
