In the exquisite villa district of Dahlem, on the site of the former Oskar-Helene-Heim hospital, the new Lush & Wald residential is being created. Extensive parkland and verdant open spaces make this such a treasured part of Berlin. Three of Berlin’s most beautiful lakes are within easy reach. This is where Berliners head to for respite from the hustle and bustle of big city life. This near-natural site will be home to two newly developed, U-shaped buil dings with up to four full storeys. A decorative garden will form their centerpiece. The architectural composition of the two buildings is a contemporary continuation of the renowned interwar Berlin Modernist style, combined with the residential forms of the garden city movement.The floor plans have been designed to meet the needs of a variety of future residents and are available in a uniquely broad range of sizes and layouts. Each unit is equipped with a balcony, loggia or terrace, which, in combination with large-format windows, create a bridge between the interior living space and exterior landscape.The building’s material composition echoes the high standards of the architectural concept. The facades combine plasterwork with brick to reflect the natural colors and tones of the buildings’ surrounding environs, and contribute to the intrinsic value of the ensemble’s appearance. The careful selection of materials conti- nues in the design of the decorative garden, and the entrances and stairways that surround it.
