The flat is located around the historic „Kreuzberg 36“ and more exactly between the pretty Lausitzerplatz and the old Markthalle, now new melting point for street food’s lovers. This part of Kreuzberg until 20 years ago was almost completely surrounded by the wall and for this reason was also considered a no man’s land. A lot of pictures of the ’80s rap presenting desolation beside the wall have been made in those streets. After the fall of the wall the district started being one of the most interesting place where subculture and strange cultures lived together giving life to important projects and clubs. Nowadays Koepi or Rachhaus could be mentioned for this attempt.
Today the area aroung those streets maintain a certain flavor of authenticity that a lot of other district in Kreuzberg are loosing.
The flat inside reflects this character of timeless place and above all the building is one of the most authentic old construction in Kreuzberg still to be renewed.
