It’s all about volume inside this timber maisonette in Berlin, which features towering ceilings and floor-to-ceiling glass.

Thaerstrasse 27 sits inside a Passivehaus apartment block designed by Architekturbüro MüllersBüro to maximise energy efficiency. The wooden complex was built on the site of an old slaughterhouse in the city’s Prenzlauer Berg and was Germany’s first multi-storey residential ‘timber tower’ when it was completed in 2010, rising to a lofty five floors.

Though built from wood, the Berlin property’s interiors are far from rustic. Herringbone parquet flooring and stucco surfaces have been used alongside plaster pillars and dark green shutters to give a classical feel to the 175 sqm dwelling – on the market via Fantastic Frank for €1.1m. The home sits in a district characterised by Wilhmenine buildings.

Its scene-stealer is the 5.5-metre-high living room which is flooded with light thanks to the double-height windows on its east side. Three-fold glass doors at the rear lead out onto a balcony overlooking the street below.

Bedrooms (which have juliet balcones) are set across the upper level, and are reached by a wooden staircase and gallery, which looks over the living room below. It’s currently used as a foosball area but is big enough to double as a reading snug or office space.
