Considerate and sophisticated – forward-thinking and fun
Geisberg Berlin is a project with a focus firmly centred on the future. How can we design living spaces with a positive lasting effect? How do we want to live our lives both as individuals and members of the community? Geisberg Berlin takes on these contemporary challenges and provides its own creative, forward-looking solutions. The five key interrelated priorities are:
1. Sustainable design
Geisberg Berlin aims to be the first listed historic building to be awarded the gold certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council (Deutschen Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen e.V. – DGNB).
Geisberg Berlin is a prime location for healthy, sophisticated and considerate living in harmony with the local building culture, the environment and the surrounding neighbourhood.
As a building with its own unique identity, Geisberg Berlin serves as the foundation for an inspirational community with dedicated spaces for meeting and sharing ideas.
The transformation of what was once a grey and anonymous part of the cityscape into a green oasis has created the perfect conditions for healthy living and well-being.
5. Enjoying life
Geisberg Berlin is the perfect way to combine living responsibly with enjoying life.
For anyone who loves strolling through the city, it’s merely a matter of deciding which direction to start walking in first. The south offers the Bavarian quarter with its turn-of-the-century villas, elegant squares and attractive little shops. Head east for Winterfeldtplatz with its famous weekly market and the Akazienkiez quarter – hugely popular with Schöneberg locals for its distinctive shops, cafés and restaurants. Or else try north for City West and the Kurfürstendamm – the KaDeWe department store and the new hotspot Bikini Berlin are just around the corner, as is the legendary Zoo Palast, which has recently been reopened. And if instead you choose to head west, you’ll soon reach Bar jeder Vernunft and Komödie am Kurfürstendamm, both renowned symbols of Berlin’s theatre scene. Beauty is infinite. Just like Geisberg Berlin.
