A home surrounded by green space yet close to Berlin

In Bernau Friedenstal, we created a green residential idyll with perfect connections to Berlin's city center. Inspired by classic Bauhaus architecture, the clinker brick façades and large glass windows now echo history. The first, northern construction phase, consisting of 223 rental apartments, was completed in August 2021. Conceptual rounds are currently underway with the municipality of Bernau for the 36,147 m² southern section.

A historical plot of land

Before demolition, three heavily dilapidated building ruins were located on the historically marked property, which were built around 1915. Over the decades, the buildings served as a hospital and sanatorium. Until 1994 the Soviet army used them as an officers' casino and listening station. With the demolition of the ruins we set a new milestone in the development of the site.

„"We think like film producers. The good story that we discover is the property. Then we write a script, in other words the utilization concept. This gives rise to a film production, namely the building. The moviegoers are our residents, who are always happy to return home."“

Michael Ehret

Development in two steps

The total of seven construction plots on the site will be realized in two phases. The realization in the north has begun: Four structures with 223 residential units will be built by 2020. The apartments in the two to four-story buildings will vary between 40 m² and 100 m².

The southern area will then be developed with a comprehensive neighborhood concept. Residents and neighbors will be able to take care of themselves from daily grocery shopping to visits to the doctor. Mobility leaves nothing to be desired; environmentally friendly transportation is ensured directly at the S-Bahn station with its P+R parking garage. Further neighborhood concepts are under development.
