Our Berlin Wall is coming down!

It’s time to tear down our Berlin Wall! The paper-thin walls built after WWII in our 1914 Altbau must go! They alter the original plan of The Flat and we want to restore the prussian beauty of the magnificient ceiling (almost 4m) and boiseries.

We have checked the materials: the big walls are very sound, the ceiling structure is very traditional and is in pristine condition, it looks as it was put together yesterday, with its bamboo light structure. That one is going to stay there. The ugly 70s plastic fake wood ceiling cover is going.

Also the beautiful old oak parquet is ok and is definitely going to stay. The heavy iron heating system is fabulous…as the arched window is one of the reasons why we bought this flat…but first of all, let’s get rid of those walls added 60 years ago…
