    Default Expanding Vertically in Berlin


    Andreas Meichsner for The New York Times
    Two floors were added to the top of an old factory in Berlin, where Prussian army uniforms were once made, bringing the building back to its pre-World War II height (the top floors had been removed after being damaged in the war).





    Andreas Meichsner for The New York Times
    In the living area, vibrantly colored chairs and small tables by Konstantin Grcic are set off by the neutral backdrop created by materials like sanded concrete. The sofa is by Martin Visser and the dining table is by Jakob Gebert.




    Andreas Meichsner for The New York Times
    A spare concrete staircase connects the living and dining area to the master bedroom, bathroom and terrace upstairs. At the foot of the stairs is a rare flash of color: a brightly colored dish for Cleo, Ms. Sanderís cat.

    The massive open space could be better used.

    It looks like an office after the bailiffs have been in.

    There are 2 styles of German interior design. 1. Kitch cuckoo clock Bavarian or 2. Nuclear bunker.

    Edit: I also hate beds that don't have some kind of headboard. The wall is cold to lean on and gets greasy marks very quickly [/martha stewart] And where are the pictures/photos?

    It's very cold. Not me at all.

    It IS really sparse. I do love the bedroom with the glass wall though; with 8 cats, I picture myself as cleaning it often if I lived there.

    Way too much empty space and concrete. Looks like a prison and a warehouse had a baby and then left it to die in the cold.

    It doesn't look like it's finished. It's like the construction workers started putting up the bare walls and just walked out halfway.

    I hate florescent lighting. I would go insane so fast in a place like this.

    I had to highlight the other part since that is what made me laugh-and yeah, it is nuclear bunkerish.
