A penthouse flat in a typical East-German prefabricated concrete building in Berlin was redesigned. Cheap solutions and simple changes were in the focus, because the client is renting the flat.To emphasize the character of the construction, all wallpaper was removed, exposing concrete on all walls and ceilings. The light grey of the concrete and the liveliness of the surfaces were maintained.
To contrast the concrete, white glossy PVC flooring was chosen. This creates smooth reflexions of the spaces. The green colour of windows and radiators informed the kitchen design. A regular Ikea kitchen was combined with glass mosaic tiles and a stainless steel sink.Location: Berlin, Germany Architect: designyougo
