How about a dwelling covered by the trees and leaves… in Berlin?
It is hard to find a cozy and hidden-from-eyes place in the midst of the city to hide away from tense streets and offices. But today, there is one – in Berlin. It is located in the city’s Tiergarten, the residential complex made of houses, which is maximally covered with greenery to create a hideaway for people who’d like to be left alone and work quietly in the distance from annoying everyone.
The place is created by several local developers with the help of designers K. Takahama & K. Buchholz. The place is an example of architectural freedom and capacity of rooms for living, working, and creativity. The residential complex is a fabulous mélange of glass, wood, brick, concrete, and greenery – which includes chestnut, medlar, and bamboo trees, creating a perfect piece of a refined hideaway. As fanciful and exotic as it may seem, the residential complex has fully functional and humble in space twenty-six homes, each only 130 square meters (fourteen hundred sq. feet), which is enough, however, for the life of a small family of 3 people.
