A sculptural Space Age-inspired Berlin apartment by Jurgen Mayer asks for €1.565m

Biomorphic forms and subtle Space Age design converge at this Berlin apartment by architect Jürgen Mayer.

JOH3 was completed in Mitte in 2012 near Museum Island and Friedrichstrasse and features a sculptural, undulating structure set around a graduated courtyard garden – conceived as an oasis within the city by Mayer’s eponymous practice.

The development is said to be inspired by Space Age design. It is wrapped in a unique slatted façade made with aluminium blades that play with ideas of transparency and seclusion, cocooning inhabitants while capturing southwest light through floor-to-ceiling glazing.

This 119 sq m apartment is on the third floor and has a breezy, open-plan design. The centrepiece is the living room, where a sunken conversation pit recalls the curvilinear volumes of the exterior with a dose of 1960s design. Outer walls are heavy glass, offering views across the apartment’s private 10 sq m loggia and the communal garden below, plus a unique perspective of the building’s dramatic facade. (Motorised light-transparent blinds help cool the space in summer).

A glossy, all-white Bulthaup kitchen heightens the soft, minimalist space vibe, while other unique features include a cloud-shaped window in the bedroom and a UFO-inspired tile design in the bathroom.

The Mitte bolthole is for sale via Fantastic Frank Berlin for €1.565m (with an option to purchase a parking spot in the complex’s underground garage for an additional €50,000) and furniture designed by local studio New Tendency. The Spandauer Vorstadt gallery district is on the doorstep, with shops, cafes and restaurants all within easy walking distance.
