Constructed in the 1880s, this ornate Berlin residential building first served as the officer quarters for the Guard Corps Regiment. After recent restorations, toi toi toi creative studio, affectionately known as T3, was hired to transform the building owner’s private top floor city getaway, to accommodate a growing family of six.

The 70 sqm flat boasts an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area that extends onto the balcony creating a spacious living for tight quarters. The material palette and furniture selection is warm and inviting featuring layers of rich, muted colours and curved edges that produce an ambience of sophisticated comfort.

Entering the living space, the eye is immediately drawn to the sleek white oak cabinet, designed by t3, that sweeps wall to wall. Unifying the living and dining areas, it serves as a bench, sideboard, storage and entertainment stand. The piece is beautifully finished with timber detailing and soft closing drawers beneath for ease of access.

During the evening hours, a generously sized sleeping space for two family members is easily assembled in this space using transformable furniture; and neatly packs away to double as a couch during the day.

The adjoining open kitchen space features a breakfast area that invites casual gathering. The custom oak table with a muted green linoleum surface is accompanied by fresh, coloured chairs and an adaptable highchair. This area looks onto a floor-to-ceiling glass door that connects the interior living space to a fresh, contemporary, outdoor setting on the balcony.

The space seeks to embody an aura of calm (to pacify the chaos that inherently comes with family life) through a balance of openness, separation and visual simplicity.

Upon entering the bedroom, the eye follows the lines of the sloped ceiling as natural light from a skylight above reflects in all directions. Playing off the existing angles, t3 designed a custom wall unit that acts as a backboard for the king-size bed, a wardrobe and additional storage. The coloured millwork wraps around the corner of the room integrating a fold-down bed into the flush wall surface.
