LUX is created in direct proximity of the Brandenburger Gate close to the elegant and quiet area around Neustädtischen Kirchplatz. Its extraordinary architecture and its 64 convenient Real Estate Propertys satisfy claims on highest levels. Annette Axthelm and Henner Rolvien are part of the "quietly famous" of the capital city region. They prefer to retreat to a position behind the architecture, letting the buildings speak for themselves. Their designs are works of art and satisfy the most stringent requirements in terms of functionality and comfort. They are powerful but never presumptuous.


Annette Axthelm and Henner Rolvien have created a building of timeless durability. A fascinating play between building forms and light completely removes any demarcation between inside and out. The façade opens up to the light on all sides and mirrors the park in front of the building, which already appears to reflect the nearby Tiergarten.


The loggias accentuate the osmosis between external and internal spaces. Almost every apartment has a loggia or terrace. Their floors are finished in high-quality Bankirai wood.


The building's structure opens up to a beautiful internal area to relax and enjoy some quiet time. The darkly shimmering, subtly formed glass and metal façade creates an attractive contrast to the champagne-coloured surfaces of the courtyard. Sensitive openings allow a view into the interior of the built sculpture and the spectacularly innovative light distribution. Integrated panels, sun protection and insulated glazing guarantee intimacy and individuality despite the high degree of transparency.


Living in its most beautiful form


Inside the apartments the champagne colouring of the surfaces reflects the crystalline façade, the staircases and the landing lobbies. There is underfloor heating, which adopts a cooling function during the summer. The layouts, terraces and loggias likewise offer potential for individual variations. At this stage, occupants have the opportunity to express their own individuality and plan unique homes for themselves. Find out more: http://bit.ly/lux-berlin
