THE WILHELMSAUE 32 CONSTRUCTION PROJECT IS LOCATED IN THE DISTRICT OF WILMERSDORF, IN A BOURGEOIS DISTRICT WITH A DIVERSE INFRASTRUCTURE
The architecture of the building ensemble, consisting of a front and rear building, advances the concept of traditional modernism, speaking a contemporary architectural language and harmonizing it with the requirements of modern lifestyles.
The horizontal arrangement of the impressive street facade accentuates the unique character of each of the building’s levels. The ground and first floors are accentuated by a massive brick base, which lends the entire building an imposing strength and solidity.
The ground and first floors are accentuated by a massive brick base, which lends the entire building an imposing strength and solidity. A fine distinction is made between the facade of the ground floor and the overlying belle étage. All sections of the upper floors are designed to admit plenty of light, with open balconies and plaster facades creating a clear and regular composition. This appearance is enhanced by roof terraces belonging to some of the units. The imposing and carefully orchestrated main entrance communicates the particular importance of Wilhelmsaue32 as one of the district’s pioneering architectural developments.
The residential units provide a contemporary answer to the specific requirements of modern lifestyles. There is a vast scope for individual wishes to be accommodated, and future-oriented modifications can also be made. The result is a trendsetting townhouse ensemble, with an architectural concept that sets the tone for the future of urban design in modern European cities.

The solid-masonry walls are given a plaster finish and a bright coat of paint, dispensing with frills of any sort.
Analogously, bathrooms emphasize the use of timeless quality materials.
Large-format tiles are used for walls and floors, while the reticently styled, bathroom ceramics of the “Duravit Starck3” feature clear geometric lines. The same timeless elegance graces the “Hansgrohe” bathroom fixtures with their classic design. The walk-in showers provide the highest level of quality and comfort.
