FvF + Vitra = New Berlin Apartment

FvF in Berlin just teamed up with Vitra to create a gorgeous apartment that is now available to rent out for when you want to welcome friends for dinner parties, workshops and overnight stays. They've offered me a chance to use the space, so perhaps I will this summer (more info here) but until then, here's a gorgeous view of the apartment they've designed. I just love the kitchen and the windows throughout the space. There is nothing like an old German pre-war building (particularly a Jugendstil altbauwohnung), that's for sure... berlin

From their press release, "Under the direction of Freunde von Freunden, the architect Etienne Descloux and the interior architect Katrin Greiling, the 65sqm “Altbau” apartment on Mulackstrasse was rebuilt and designed to become a flexible apartment, adaptable to the diverse scenarios of everyday life."

Anything in particular that you like about this space? When I look at it I keep thinking of how much I want to get back into client work again - I'd love to design a commercial space - like a restaurant, office, even a hotel. Would be so much fun! Perhaps later this year...
