has been described to me as a city of interior courtyards. This unique building commissioned by property development group Euroboden, and designed by , JOH3 holds true to this motif with an expressive building inside and out, designed around a carefully conceived, shared, central, garden courtyard. So well conceived that its description required three commas. It is a building of intense integration, from stairwells and elevators to facade and apartment interiors, the building is itself, there is an identity which is belonging only to this place.

The facade is a , alluding to the landscape of the city, which is created out of channel slats of varying depths, secured back to the building . The contours of the implied surface created by many ribs wrap and slope inward towards the building’s windows, providing shading and fenestration-views which are not-of-the-everyday.

The south-west facing apartments are located over a number of commercial spaces at ground level which open out onto Johannisstraße in Mitte, Berlin’s downtown district. They overlook the green space created within the building footprint and consist of a number of unique floorplans, with spacious, breezy inside/outside transitions and variation from room to room in height, as well as floor depth. There are condominiums which are organized into townhouses with private gardens as well as classic apartments or penthouses with a great, open view of the old Friedrichstadt.
