KUEHN MALVEZZI . + World-Architects

This project consists of two mixed-use buildings: Torstasse 86, completed in 2014, and Torstrasse 84 built three years later. The two separate buildings follow the same design principles, structured by a grid of regular, extra-large windows and a reduced model-like facade.
Torstrasse 86 is a seven story apartment building sitting on a lot just 11 meters wide in the centre of Berlin Mitte. While the stuccoed north-facing front facade is smooth and serene, on the south side the structure is stepped back in stages, giving the apartments generous south-facing balconies and terraces. The basic floor plan is organized around a central living space that connects two very different sides, extending from the busy street to a quiet courtyard. Large windows bring plenty of light into the 15-meter-deep building. The result is four single-story loft apartments and a two-story penthouse on top, with retail space in the basement and groundfloor levels. Continue reading KUEHN MALVEZZI
