A visit to the ALEXANDER-Berlin
Alexander is looking for proximity to the Berlin brick tradition, as we know it mainly from industrial, commercial or public buildings. The new apartment building is an expot and a loner, like the surrounding houses: here no house resembles the other, cloudy jumping like the architecture of the facades. Overlooking Ludwichkirchplatz.
Good neighbourliness gives a feeling like the bass in the music: it rarely has a solo – but if it is missing, then nothing is true anymore. It makes the rhythm and gives harmonies its backbone. Here the bass is called: Ludwigkirchplatz. This Italian-looking piazza frames a magnificent brick church. There are no chain stores in the side streets, where most restaurants, cafés, shops and galleries are small, fine and owner-managed – they offer the special, the stylish and selected.
The charming corner has been regarded as a highly sought-after residential address for generations. This is what the building will look like, when it is completed.
