WALDEN 48

New construction of an apartment building in timber construction

Between “Georgen-Parochial-Friedhof“ and “Volkspark Friedrichshain“ lies the collaborative building project Walden 48 with more than 40 apartments. The building was developed in pure timber construction with a sustainable energy concept. It responds both to the listed areas of the cemetery and to the situation on the busy Landsberger Allee.
On the street side, the two-story base recedes behind the historic cemetery wall, while the residential block with its slate façade seems to float above it.
Towards the park-like cemetery grounds, the house opens up with deep loggias that make the bulkhead construction readable. The garden façade and the staggered storey are covered with natural larch formwork.
The architectural concept creates an extraordinary connection between urban and natural spaces.
