Berlin, Berlin, Germany

Berlin is perhaps the most exciting metropolis in Europe. If you want to explore the city or drop by for a work stay, you should rent one of the Miniloft apartments. Britta Jürgens and Matthew Griffin have created a unique architectural gem in the heart of Mitte. Curved stainless steel bands wrap around the elaborately renovated old building and the newly designed extension. In the courtyard there is a green oasis with old trees where you can relax from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

What looks spectacular from the outside is no less great from the inside. There are a total of four different loft types. The upscale apartments have access to the elevator and underfloor heating, and some have floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the room with light. Overall, the design is functional and cozy at the same time. All apartments are equipped with free WiFi, TV, a well-equipped kitchenette and a dining and living area with sofas. The dining table has space for up to six people.

The two architects take a very similar approach in the new miniloft building in the vibrant Kreuzberg. The cozy and bright apartments overlook the Besselpark away from the traffic of the legendary Friedrichstrasse, exactly five minutes on foot from Checkpoint Charlie between Mitte and Kreuzberg. The beautiful building is just one of several new architectural highlights that form this new creative district in Berlin surrounded by many masterpieces from the International Building Exhibition.

What can you do in Berlin? The question should rather be: What not? For the first ideas, a bound copy of a Berlin guide (English) is available in every Miniloft, in which the operators have lovingly written tips so that guests can immediately explore the most beautiful sides of the city. Bike tours from the Miniloft, Berlin for the whole family, Berlin's best street food markets: nothing is left to be desired here. The book can also be downloaded in advance from the website so that you can prepare yourself for the visit. The operators have put together their own children's craft book for younger guests. Both locations are just a few minutes' walk away from lots of great bars, restaurants, museums and supermarkets.

ArchitectureBritta Jürgens and Matthew Griffin are the architects who run the minilofts and who also designed and developed the building themselves. The Miniloft building on the property in Hessische Strasse is a complex interplay of refurbished old and new buildings. When the two architects bought the property in 1999, there was only an old side wing typical of Berlin's turn-of-the-century architecture that needed renovation. In a first phase of construction, the first compact and classic mini lofts were built here. In the second phase of construction, the modern miniloft building was built on the once overgrown site of the front building, which was bombed in the Second World War. Its three curved stainless steel bands surround the old building in the rear area and mediate between the different heights of the neighboring buildings. The modern "extrovert" and "introvert" mini lofts are located in the new building. The building has been awarded various architecture prizes and published in various international magazines and books.

Miniloft is committed to the equality of LGBTTIQ.

EnvironmentThe operators try to continuously reduce the environmental impact of their operations. The building was designed to meet the highest sustainability standards. The stainless steel facade is durable as is the walk-in, green roof on the side wing. The greening reduces the rainwater drainage and contributes to the improvement of the microclimate. Of course, all exterior surfaces meet the highest insulation standards. Instead of air conditioning, a sun protection system was installed to reduce energy consumption in summer. All new interior plaster surfaces were made in environmentally friendly clay plaster. The sealing of the outer surfaces is permeable to rainwater. The electricity comes from an ecological provider. The heating and hot water system is fed by a highly efficient gas burner. In order to neutralize all greenhouse gases, certificates are purchased from Atmosfair.de for every cubic meter of gas that are used, and the money invested is invested in certified climate protection projects. All cleaning agents used are environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable. All foodstuffs provided, such as coffee, tea, other beverages and oil, vinegar etc. come from organic cultivation and are fair trade products.
