Gernot's Berlin Flat

House Call

Name: Gernot
Location: Friedrichshain — Berlin, Germany

My flat is located in one of the Max Kreuziger-Haus, described as "socialist classicism" (read: a bit of a wedding cake ) style of a building that started life as a school and has been converted into flats.

The original floor plans and classrooms had been quite large — allowing for both open plan living and additional walls being "inserted" as needed.

Because of my fondness of black & white photography and travel, the interior is now a mix of socialist classicism features — Jaya Ibrahim and Ed Tuttle design, and (for good measure) the occassional USM and unavoidable IKEA piece.

Thanks Gernot!
