Yoo Berlin - Water Front ViewBerlin-MITTE / Bertolt-Brecht-Platz 2 in D-10117
Includes a fully equipped kitchen
The stepped cubes of this ten story edifice on the banks of the river Spree call to mind a South American pyramid—and once you’ve seen it, the building is sure to linger in your memory. This is due to more than just the fantastic location: The brand- new complex was created by the famed French designer Philippe Starck, and built by the brand “YOO inspired by Starck”.
Residents have access to an on-site fitness center complete with heated swimming pool. A concierge greets visitors and looks after residents’ apartments while they are away. Parking places in the underground garage are available for purchase if desired.
In this lovely apartment, and to the right of the entrance, you’ll find a generously proportioned living and dining area, with an open kitchen and roomy covered terrace. From this expansive loggia, you’ll enjoy an impressive view: The river Spree flows past beneath you, the riverbank is just across the way. Looking up, you’ll see a panorama of Berlin architecture, old and new, including the curving building called the “Spree Triangle.”
The technical exactitude of the windows will impress you right away: a touch of the hand opens them. Just across from the entrance you’ll find a detached room that’s ideally suited for children, or for use as a guest room. Within easy reach is the guest bathroom, with a shower and a washing machine hookup.
The master bathroom--with bathtub, shower, and double sink— is just one door down. Both the bathrooms are decorated tastefully, tiled in sandy-colored stones and equipped with top quality appliances. The master bathroom opens onto the master bedroom, which features a stunning bay window with a spectacular view of the river. The luxurious dark hardwood flooring is heated from below.
But one look at the map—or, better yet, a look around at the neighbors’ facades—is all it takes to know you have found yourself in the very heart of Berlin, at what is, literally, one of the city’s best addresses.
