Hausburgstraße 15, 10249 Berlin-Friedrichshain

Loft new-build at former slaughterhouse

While the boroughs of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg were quickly hyped in most city guidebooks following the fall of the Berlin Wall and became home to many celebrities, the district of Friedrichshain maintained its cult status for a long time after. This part of the city occupies a special place in Berlin city life not only for night-owls and clubbers but also for artists and culture lovers. The district gets its name from Volkspark Friedrichshain, Berlin’s first public park which served as a counter to Tiergarten, the former royal hunting grounds. The park itself owes its name to Friedrich II, a monument to whom was rediscovered during renovation and reconstruction work in the park in 1997.
The building constructed on this site was completed in 2011 and boasts loft-like features, which are also the hallmarks of Archigon’s signature architecture.
