Residential Refurbishment and Roof Space Development

Kuno-Fischer-Stra├če 20, Berlin-Charlottenburg

Work stages: 1-8

New maisonette created out of 3 small existing flats and a roof space development.

Despite the narrow rooms and single aspect windows, the refurbishment manages to give the impression of generous spaces. The main feature is a new staircase which not only connects the 4th floor kitchen and dining area with the roof level living spaces, but carries on to a roof terrace on the flat roof. Access to the terrace is via a large sliding roof light above the staircase which brings daylight 2 storeys down into the 4th floor.

Net area, after: ca. 170 sq m

Planning and completion: Dec 2009-Feb 2012
