Neue Kantstrasse LakeBerlin - Charlottenburg / Dernburgstraße 58 – 14057 Berlin
This new building Neue Kantstrasse Lake is being constructed on the plot of land on Dernburgstraße 58, where one of the two front houses of the original residential complex once stood. The complex was destroyed during the last years of the war and never rebuilt. Of the original three-part ensemble, the front house on Herbartstraße and the central garden house have survived in place on the delightfully landscaped plot of land. These two listed buildings are not affected by the current construction project, which will restore the complex to the original number of buildings.
A total of 26 modern flats are being constructed in “Neue Kantstrasse Lake”, ranging in size from 46m² to 140m². The building consists of two basement floors with a basement garage, a raised ground floor, 5 normal floors and a penthouse level.
The south-facing flats enjoy open views over Lake Lietzensee. The landscaped garden will be for the communal use of all residents. Gently sloping down towards the lake, the garden gives the impression of “flowing” into Lake Lietzensee – a quality hard to match anywhere else in Berlin! The facade of the Drachenburg has been designed to harmonise with the existing structures of the neighbouring listed buildings as well as with the materials used in the existing building in the ensemble. Light colours will dominate in the facade of the building, with a red brick base and red brick trimmings around the windows. Thanks to their large windows and offset balconies, all flats are suffused with light.
This construction project meets the German KfW70 environmental standards.
Charlottenburg area offers the possibility to enjoy a wide range of sports, around the Olympic stadium, for instance, the Horst-Dohm ice-skating rink in Wilmersdorf or Mommsen stadium next to the exhibition centre. Alternatively, you can go sailing on the River Havel, horse riding in Grunewald forest, hang-gliding off Teufelsberg hill, rowing on the River Spree or swimming in the Hundekehlesee lake. If you prefer walking, you can choose between the city, its many parks or nature at its best in Grunewald forest.
