townhouse n7

interior architect christa fischer realised a townhouse in the popular residential area of central berlin. floorplan and installations were ment to follow a strict baseline grid, the house was planned to be flooded with light from both sides. following this guideline of the client, typographer erik spiekermann, a building was developed on a site of only 6.5m width, having more than eight floors with different use. the entry level is the garage and access to the staircase. the two first floors are designed for office useage. a mezzanine, beiing only 2.28m high, is used for housekeeping utensils, and divides the part that is rent from the private part located in the three upper levels.
the simplicity of the materials can be seen like a common theme in the whole house: surfaces, have been left in rough conditions on walls and floors, and an interior construction, showing the shell of the house in different places.
interior architect fischer placed in all floors only room-high sliding doors and walls out of glass and wood. by means of them, its possible to build smaller or larger spatial units.
