Living at the Mauerpark

Quarter courtyards

The project comprises three residential buildings and sets a striking urban conclusion for the entire residential quarter at the Mauerpark with its total of 17 buildings. The buildings offer 122 rental apartments with 2 to 5 rooms, mainly in subsidized housing. The simultaneously clear as well as restrained character of the buildings leads to an inner cohesion, in which the spatial formulation of green inner courtyards contrasts with the surrounding urban space. While the green areas bordering the neighboring properties have a public character, intimate neighborhood courtyards are located inside of the quarter, each enclosed by several buildings.

Berlin Wall

The former Wall strip is a site steeped in the history. After the fall of the Wall, local residents reclaimed the resulting wasteland (the former Wall strip between Bernauerstrasse and Gleimstrasse) for public use as open and green space. In 1994, the strip was officially rededicated for the park use by the Berlin Senate. With the implementation of the housing project on the edge of the Mauerpark, the urban development initiated in 2012 has become a reality by 2018.
