The renovotion

In 2011/12 the apartment has been led back to the intentions of the construction time. We removed later changes and rebuilt the wall between kitchen and living room. The interior color scheme is inspired by Le Corbusier's color theory, which was implemented at the exterior of the house. The renovation has been planned and monitored by architect Kathrin Bunte (Berlin).

The "shashlik window"

All apartments in the Corbusier house were originally equipped with glass windows between kitchen and living room. We reconstructed a window to show the spatial ideas of Le Corbusier even in the one storey apartments. In 1958, neither hamburgers nor döner were the synonym for fast food, but shashlik. So the Berliners popularly called this "shashlik window", based on the windows of the mobile trailers that were used to sell food.

The floor

Under a modern PVC flooring we discovered the original linoleum. This shows traces of fifty years of use and has been worked up. The new linoleum floor in hall and kitchen was sponsored by the manufacturer Armstrong DLW AG.
