This
penthouse is one of the three masterpieces of Palais Varnhagen, the one with the
best view and inspired by the historic city palace in the sense of 19th century
”salon life”, it offers ample space for stylish gatherings on the 6th
floor with 6-meter floor to ceiling windows and an impressive gallery.



The
building was designed by David Chipperfield in 2014, and offers all aspects of
contemporary and elegant housing in the heart of Germany‘s capital close to
Brandenburg Gate, the famous Adlon Hotel and know luxury shopping department
Galeries Lafayette.



A large
lobby serviced by a concierge evo­kes the flair of a traditional grand hotel,
while the apartment is equipped with modern technology regarding safety and
climate control. A lift allows direct access to the apartment, where a spacious
living- and dining area allows for elaborate entertaining. The kitchen is
hidden behind a set of sliding doors, painted by the artist Ilya Gaponov. The
upper level features two bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, one of them with a
steam room and sauna. The apartment features lovely interior details, such as
palisander veneer on the built-in furniture and walk-in closet to mention only
a few.



This unique
property is rounded off with a 60sqm on-top roof terrace with sweeping
360-degree view over the whole of Berlin.



At the
beginning of the 19th century, ”salon life” flourished in many
bourgeois flats in European metropolises: people from different backgrounds met
in ”literary salons” to exchange ideas. In Berlin, Rahel Varnhagen’s
evening parties, which took place at Französische Straße 20 until 1827, were
particularly popular: Wilhelm von Humboldt, August Wilhelm Schlegel, Prince
Louis Ferdinand of Prussia, the Mendelssohn family, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich
Hegel and Heinrich Heine were among Rahel Varnhagen’s famous guests and
admirers of her salons.



Just a few
houses away, this history now lives on, where the salon idea finds a new stage
with private soirées, house concerts and other receptions: the Palais
Varnhagen.



Star architect
David Chipperfield drew inspiration from the historic city palace for exclusive
receptions and elegant dinner events at Palais Varnhagen. The salon flats and
penthouses of the city palaces take up the advantages of upper-class flats in
old buildings and focus on generosity and representation.
