Berlin Modernism Housing Estates

Berlin Modernism Housing Estates

Appearing between 1913 and 1934, Berlin's six Modernist housing estates, with their promise of 'light, air and sunshine' for residents, provided a welcome antidote to the gloomy tenement buildings of Wilhelmine Germany. Their clean lines made them hugely influential in 20th century architecture and town planning.

Contemporary, light-filled, welcoming, well-proportioned and above all affordable for ordinary people, these apartments with kitchens, bathrooms and balconies were innovative in their time and even today have retained their fresh feel. The timeless design of Gartenstadt Falkenberg, the Schillerpark estate, Wohnstadt Carl Legien, Weisse Stadt, 'Siemens town' and the Britz estate (also known as the horseshoe estate because of the distinctive design of its main building) has ensured they all remain popular places to live to this day. By visiting the exhibition apartments or taking a guided tour of the buildings, all of which have been fully preserved, you can get a real feel for what it's like to live in such an innovative environment. The principal architects responsible for the planning of the estates were Bruno Taut and Martin Wagner but some star architects of the day, such as Hans Scharoun, Hugo Häring and Walter Gropius were also involved.

Anyone wanting to visit the estates should allow plenty of time, as they are spread right across Berlin – although this does provide a good opportunity to take a tour of the city by public transport. On the horseshoe estate, don't miss Tautes Heim, the holiday home that the lead architect Bruno Taut built for himself there. Fully renovated with all its 1920s-style fixtures and fittings, the house represents a trip back in time.

Located in Berlin Mitte, the very heart of the capital, the Hackesche Höfe complex is Germany's largest series of enclosed courtyards and one of Berlin's main attractions. This is where you will find the atmospheric Chamäleon Theatre, a charming venue whose historical, art nouveau concert hall goes hand in hand with superb cuisine and the latest in stage technology. It is the perfect setting for variety, cabaret and events that are out of the ordinary.

Walking into the Hackesche Höfe, with its maze of interconnected courtyards and artistically significant historical façades, feels like stepping back into turn-of-the-century Berlin.This magnificent structure was originally opened in 1906 and comprehensively renovated in 1994. Today, it is an ideal home for the Chamäleon Theatre and its premium entertainment format, which combines different artistic genres and innovative programming to make it a pioneering force in German theatre and variety. The theatre's former ballroom was lovingly restored in 2004/2005 and – thanks to its glamorous art nouveau features and wonderful ambience – is one of Berlin's loveliest auditoriums. Behind the scenes, however, there is nothing but the very latest in technology. High-end lighting and sound systems ensure maximum visual and acoustic pleasure, and an adaptable stage system accommodates a wide variety of stage designs. Even the seating within the auditorium can be changed as required to suit the audience's needs. A well-stocked bar and excellent cuisine served by the partner restaurant 'al dente' round off the bill nicely, guaranteeing theatre-goers the perfect culinary accompaniment to a fine evening's entertainment.
