Four individual residential buildings in traditional architectural style and Berlin City West's first residential tower together form HIGH WEST on Heilbronner Straße, from the corner of Karlsruher Straße to Katharinenstraße, in the Charlottenburg area of Halensee. An underground car park completes the ensemble on a site totalling 5,000 square metres in size. While the low-rise residential buildings are completely new housing developments, the tower, which was previously used solely for commercial purposes, is being gutted, given a modern natural stone façade and split into attractive residential units by adding several dividing walls. The high-rise tower was designed as an office block in the 1960's. After gutting and remodelling the façade, the 49 freehold apartments being built here are now being fitted with expansive glazed fronts and recessed balconies. The previous technical facilities on the roof of the Tower are being removed and replaced by a penthouse set back behind a conveniently located roof terrace, which provides space for relaxation. On the higher of the Tower's 17 floors you can admire Berlin from above in every direction. However, the levels further down also let you enjoy clear, distant views from well-lit rooms. The 49 apartments offer between 26m² and 322m² of space. Each one has its own cellar and - with the exception of the small one-room apartments - one or two recessed balconies. A particularly charming feature of HIGH WEST is the small square that is being created outside the entrance to the now unobstructed tower. In fine weather, the terrace of a café on the tower's ground floor will be an inviting spot to chill out and enjoy a drink. The first floor is also being redeveloped for commercial use.
A total of 121 freehold apartments are being created in HIGH WEST's four new low-rise residential buildings. In size they vary between 48m² and 147m². With the exception of the one-room apartments, they all have at least one recessed or outside balcony. Most of the ground floor flats also have a private garden in the sunny, verdant inner courtyard. Their bespoke colour schemes and contours along with a number of characteristic details set the individual buildings apart from each other offering a subtle variety of nuances. Nevertheless, they all follow a common design standard based on the traditional architectural style of the early 20th century. With their maximum of eight floors, the new buildings blend in well with the existing surroundings. The top storey of each building is designed as a penthouse floor with spacious apartments and roof terraces.
Laid out like a park, a inner courtyard, which is largely for shared use, embraces a large grassed area with different types of trees. There are also plenty of places to sit and islands with playground facilities for children of varying ages. Since the entire plot slopes down two metres from west to east and the buildings along Heilbronner Straße reflect this drop, the inner courtyard is designed in a terraced format. Brightness is a characteristic feature of the apartments, which have been planned down to the last detail and make optimum use of space: the bedrooms face the quiet inner courtyard, all living rooms have large panoramic windows and every flat has a recessed balcony, outside balcony or terrace. Look forward to premium fixtures and fittings that fulfil all modern standards - bespoke fixtures can be fitted on request.
