The Green Box

Posted on Tue, 27 Feb 2024 by KiM

By locating a single but complex green millwork box at the center of the long apartment, circulation can flow around all sides. In the box are hidden all the kitchen and bath services; around it are public rooms that face a view of the city on two sides and, on the interior, a more private enfilade of rooms for bathing. The palette of rich colors contrasts with neutral raw concrete walls and ceilings; in addition to the deep green of the central millwork are richly colored natural quartzite stones, terrazzo, brass, botanical silks and colorful fabrics designed by Josef Frank.
I’m not sure which is my favourite element – that perfect shade of green on all that wonderful built in shelving, that glorious green stone in the kitchen, the brass and stone fireplace…. Designed by Ester Bruzkus Architekten, this 120 sq m apartment in Berlin is city living at its finest! (Photos: Robert Rieger)
