Welcome to our projects series where we present benchmarks of urban living – self developed by architects and creative city makers. This week we want to present you the joint building venture project li01 by Berlin based zanderroth architekten.
We introduced zanderroth architekten to you in this article presenting five successful architects as developer firms. Since they were founded in 1999 they have developed and implemented numerous housing development projects in Berlin.
One of them is the ensemble of six apartment buildings in Liebigstrasse, Berlin.
The development project was managed as one of the biggest joint building venture project in which 144 parties (singles, couples and families) joined to form a private company that carried out the construction project on its own responsibility, under the guidance of SmartHoming. The advantages are great individual freedom of design and lower costs combined with high architectural quality.
The free-standing buildings are positioned at a distance of 15 m from each other and are open in all directions. A distinction is made between two different building typologies: 2 x VI-storey, 4 x VII-storey, and also between 6-7 different apartment types including a garden apartment.
The principle of individual residential buildings is applied in the flexible combination of their floor plans. They can be added or divided. The flexible floor plans enable small residential units for singles and couples, as well as – after merging – large units for families. Two apartments with a floor space of 52 m2 and 64 m2 can be individually used or combined to create a large 116 m2 apartment.
This follows the principle of a flexible building, since it is not dictated by load-bearing walls and building elements. Demands change depending on different stages of life and the floor plans can adapt flexibly to the living conditions and requirements of the people.
