“No matter where you come from, in Prenzlauer Berg you’re one of us.”
Reinhard Kraetzer, last district mayor for Prenzlauer Berg in an Interview
This new building complex with 107 condominiums on Teutoburger Platz in Prenzlauer Berg was developed in cooperation with Bewocon and Degilos. The corner complex includes four buildings facing the street and two courtyard houses. Graft’s architecture is characterized by differently textured surfaces, loggias that are set back, and an ivory-colored façade.
That’s the name of Teutoburger Platz in real life. It is one of the neighborhoods that were built around the heart of Berlin between 1860 and 1875. The green square is planted with robinias, birches, and rowan trees and has been used as a children’s playground since 1910. A residents’ association “Leute am Teute e.V.” [People on Teute] is committed to the neighborhood and also takes care of the building on the square, which can be rented for private parties.
Just around the corner from Teutoburger Platz is the Pfefferberg – an historical brewery site dating from 1841, which today houses a unique combination of cultural and dining venues. These include the Aedes Architecture Forum, Sergei Tchoban’s Museum of Architectural Drawing, and the workspaces of artists Olafur Eliasson and Ai Wei Wei, as well as the Pfefferberg Theater and a variety of restaurants and bars.
