Bright and cozy studio flat, perfect for 1 person or couple, centrally located in Prenzlauerberg on Lychenerstr, a beautiful tree-lined street in the Helmotzkiez. The flat is inside an ‚Altbau‘ (old, 20th century German historic building) and located in the front on the 1th floor and flooded with sunlight. The flat blends original character with wooden floor boards combined with a post war design which reminds exactly to early years of the DDR.
As the rest of Prenzlauerberg also this area belonged to the east Germany and the flat wants to be an hommage to this time. more exactly the interior design reminds to a special architecture character of the 60s socialism with space signs and planets forms which can be related to this particular time better know as russian space race. Towers designed as space rocket, interstellar world clock, satellite elements above modernist building. Those are only a few example which show how ideology, design, architecture and city can be close together and give retro-futuristic results. Ample heating, appliances such as stove/oven and washing machine make the flat home to all guests. Truly a home away from home with a feeling of life as a Berliner
This area of Prenzlberg is called Helmotzkiez for the famous and green neighborhood around the Helmholtzplatz. This was part of the Hobrecht development plan, which gave to this part of prenzlauerberg a very attractive aspect and a typical 20’s urban flavour. Through the decades, the square remained a popular small green lung for its residents. During the 90’s was better know as LSD Kiez, because of the names of the three streets () and also because of the colored mix of people and drugs which use to leave this area after the wall’s fall. Nowadays this area is popular for its beautiful and scenic attributes such as cafes, plenty of restaurants (German, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Japanese), shops & boutiques, gorgeous historic residential buildings and close to famous landmarks such as Mauer Park, Kulturbrauerei, Kastanienallee.
