The refurbishment of this small apartment, whose budget was very limited, was based on small interventions that gave a certain quality and warmth to its 32m2.
Its Dielen, the typical original Berlin wooden flooring, was rescued under a layer of cement that had covered it for years. The bathroom was completely refurbished, using surplus materials that the builder had in his warehouse.

The fronts of the kitchen furniture are a framed collage of left-over pieces of wood that the carpenter had in his workshop. A small opening between kitchen and bathroom was created to allow some natural light to enter the bathroom.
With many salvaged materials, and recovering some others of its original essence, we managed to give a new personal and unique character to this small Berlin apartment.
