Interior Design In Berlin

In terms of interior and furniture design, Berlin claims its prize! Some of the most exciting studios are located in the neighbourhood of Kreuzberg, where cheap rents once lured young, creative professionals. Now an established ‘scene’, there is much to be discovered in this part of the former West Berlin.

Urban Farming in Kreuzberg, Berlin

INFARM is pioneering on-demand farming service to help cities become self-sufficient in their food production, while eliminating waste and reducing their environmental impact. This revolutionary method of farming especially resonates with environmentally aware citizens. This step towards a more productive urban planning is evidence of Berlin’s forwardness in terms of dexterous design beyond the usual focus on sole aestheticism.

Efficient Architecture In Kreuzberg

The ‘Baugruppe’ (building collective) is a major trend in Berlin. Individuals form a group to build homes together with local architects at lower construction costs. These buildings and houses are tailored to the clients’ needs while being architecturally interesting.

Berlin’s Galleries

Berlin’s world-renowned art scene manifests itself in a plethora of galleries, each unique in itself. Berlin presents some of the most outstanding exhibition spaces, which are also very exciting architecturally. From David Chipperfield’s purpose-built contemporary art gallery to an exquisitely converted Brutalist church, these buildings compete aesthetically with the artworks that they house.
