In this beautiful Berlin apartment designed by Gisbert Pöppler, modernity and tradition go hand in hand. The Berliner Zimmer project is both conceptually and architecturally a perfect balance of past and present, of contemporary refinement and historical heritage.
This apartment, the Berliner Zimmer, in the beautiful Charlottenburg area of Berlin was extensively renovated and beautifully decorated by Gisbert Pöppler. Gisbert Pöppler Architecture & Interior has a deep knowledge of architecture, interior design and custom-made furniture. All this is combined in one boutique studio founded in 2004 by architect Gisbert Pöppler. The designer is known for his precision and refinement, his interiors are sometimes compared to jewel boxes or treasuries. Art, luxury design and bold choices are elements that keep recurring in his realisations.
Gisbert Pöppler designed a jewel box of an interior.
The beautiful historical architecture was a perfect backdrop for his interior vision for the house. The heritage of the building is combined with a contemporary interior design. The whole house is filled with surprising decorative pieces, interesting details and refined furniture. Every room was taken care of. The goal was to design soothing and comfortable spaces, adapted to the tastes and wishes of the owners. The name Berliner Zimmer refers to a typical room found in 19th- and early 20th-century apartments in Berlin: a kind of living space that connects the front building with the side wing of a building or the side wing with the rear building. In such classic Berlin zimmers there was little light, but by increasing the opening to the dining room, Pöppler provided sufficient natural light. He used bold colours and different materials and textures to emphasize the relaxed and open atmosphere of each room. He connects the different rooms and combines classic and contemporary design.

One of the striking, colourful elements is the carpet in the living space. This was an element that the customers certainly wanted to use because they had really fallen in love with it. The orange-red colour of the walls match this beautifully. On the basis of these colours, the paintings were also selected from the owners' extensive collection. The whole living space is built with the colour palette of the carpet: blue, beige, red, orange and grey. The rest of the apartment was decorated with the same subdued luxury, perfectly chosen furniture and matching works of art. With this Berliner Zimmer, Pöppler once again created a true treasure trove. All Images Courtesy of Gisbert Pöppler
