No two ways about it: This place is really, really special. With this commercial penthouse maisonette, it’s hard to say which is more spectacular: the large, airy penthouse itself, or its prime location in one of Berlin’s most sought-after neighborhoods.
First, the facts: On the lower level, a spacious, light-flooded living area with half-bath for guests is the center- point. High ceilings – 6 meters tall! – lend the space a majestic feel that’s only accentuated by the large, peaceful roof terrace (approx. 21 m2) that faces the courtyard. Two bedrooms lead off of this fantastic living area, each with its own private dressing room and ensuite bathroom. Upstairs, you’ll find two more bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a relaxing lounge area (approx. 26 m2) and an incredible rooftop terrace with a fantastic view of the city skyline.
The apartment has wood parquet flooring, easy-care radiators, white, no-nonsense tiles, and no-frills fixtures and fittings. The builder’s focus was on functionality. But with great bones like these, it’s easy to turn this into a designer’s dream project. So, let‘s move on to the possibilities:
The penthouse is zoned for commercial use, though of course it can also be used as a fabulous residential property. The stunning apartment lends itself well for use as a vacation home. However, buyers could also use the space to create a short-term commercial living space: A reception area could be placed in the entrance hall, rooms could be rented indivdually, while the terraces and the living area could serve as communal lounge/kit- chen/dining/game and/or experience spaces. Then again, a co-working space would also work very well here. There are a lot of possibilities, in short: Rooms that can be developed for temporary living and working; a chic cooking/dining/reception area; one roof terrace for business, the other for savoir-vivre. Adding a sauna to the roof terrace would also be no problem, and an outdoor kitchen could easily be installed.
Last but not least, this property would be the perfect headquarters for a start-up. Sauna, ping-pong, spa, jacuz- zi, table soccer, snooker, video projector, disco ball, indoor swing … the groundwork is there, for all of it. With a space this versatile, almost anything can be implemented. That’s what makes this space so valuable! Well, that and the location … but more about that in a moment.
Turning this property into your dream home is really extremely easy. Walk in and start dreaming…..a central kitchen on the lower level, between the two bedrooms, would be wonderful. Or, you might decide you want your kitchen right by the roof terrace. Any one of Berlin’s many bespoke kitchen studios can whip up a custom solution to suit your wishes exaclty. And there’s plenty of space for an outdoor kitchen, as well … Are you already picturing summertime barbecues on your very own roof? Go ahead and daydream! And there’s no question of disturbing the neighbors — roof terraces are quite rare, here.
Speaking of exceptional: The penthouse walls were made for hanging large-format art objects … and the sky’s the limit! With room heights of up to 6 meters, even a larger Banksy would work. Possibilities abound in this glamourous spot. Use them to create whatever you want!

Reichenberger Straße, in one of the most fascinating parts of Berlin‘s beloved Kreuzberg district, runs northwest from Paul-Lincke-Ufer to Görlitzer Park. The pleasantly residential street lies right between the two extremely cool micro-neighborhoods, or „Kiez,“ as the Berliners call them — Reuter and Wran- gel — so everything you could want, from shops to restaurants, cafes, bars, and so on is within immedi- ate walking distance. A park and canal are a stone’s throw away, too.
Nowhere is Berlin as ‚Berlin‘ as it is here. No other place in the city has as much creativity and contro- versy, bohemia and bourgeoisie, underground and establishment spots, centers, and action as this neighborhood. But rather than listen to us talk about how great this location is, the best thing to do is to explore it for yourself. Pick a warm Sunday afternoon (or a cold Tuesday night), and explore indoors or outdoors, along the riverbank on market days…you might discover a club in the evening, or a refi- ned restaurant, or a cozy pub. It won’t take long to see what we mean.
