In a residential Charlottenburg apartment near Savignyplatz, a modest space is transformed through a restrained palette and subtle interventions. Three pastel tones, with wooden floors, textile curtains, black tiles, and terrazzo counters, define the space.

Budget and time constraints fostered an honest and humble approach. Details emerge in champagne pink grout between black tiles, flush with pastel-toned plastered walls. The left largely untouched space is a respectful nod to its past character. Natural light filtering through generous openings and existing old contoured glass windows animate materials, color, and composition.
