Situated in Berlin’s Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf neighborhood, Eisenzahn 1 is Bottega Veneta’s first residential design project. The common spaces designed by Bottega Veneta, are perfectly at home with the palatial facade, complete with pilasters, arches and cornices. The six-storey property, which will be ready this autumn, houses only 12 residences, including the full-floor penthouse, priced at €8.5 million. The result is a distinctive, sophisticated interior that reflects Bottega Veneta’s timeless aesthetic and commitment to quality.
Eisenzahn 1 will house 12 exceptional residences, including one expansive full-floor penthouse with a private rooftop terrace. Each of the twelve homes is handcrafted in every detail. The flowing layouts and generous floor plans echo the elegant proportions of the grand-homes once prevalent around Kurfürstendamm, but with subtle refinements tailored to contemporary lifestyles.
Bottega Veneta’s Creative Director Tomas Maier designed the building’s lobby, common areas and showroom apartment using furniture, textiles and accessories drawn from the brand’s home collections. Mr. Maier also handpicked the wall colors, flooring, cabinetry, appliances and artwork to fully realize his vision for each space.
Spread over 5,000 square feet, the three-bedroom penthouse has wrap-around terraces, a roof garden, a walk-in dressing room and a state-of-the-art security system. Kitchen appliances are from Gaggenau, and the master bath is fitted with accessories from Dornbracht, Villeroy & Boch and Devon & Devon. Wide corridors in neutral shades lead to the various parts of the house, which include a reading room with a fireplace.
Eisenzahn 1, a new-build project by Ralf Schmitz, a fifth-generation family-run developer, takes its cues from the grand residences that lined the German capital’s expansive thoroughfares in the 1920s, as well as Haussmann’s Parisian boulevards.
Situated in Berlin’s Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf neighborhood, Eisenzahn 1 will redefine a standard of refinement in Berlin for its extraordinary craftsmanship, technical engineering and elegant style. Designed by Sebastian Treese Architekten, Ralf Schmitz’s exclusive residential architect, the property is inspired by the exquisite boulevards of Paris. Eisenzahn 1 features a contemporary palatial façade, with pilasters and cornices reminiscent of the style which originally flourished in Berlin’s dignified Charlottenburg district.
The French administrator responsible for beautifying Paris’s public spaces in the 1860s, Baron Haussmann, may have been forced to resign for his “extravagant approach”, but his grand boulevards still define the city – and now Berlin’s dignified Charlottenburg district.
