About our home

This is a beautiful loft in a very famous, friendly and artistic building in the center of Berlin. I have lived here for 5 years and I love the neighborhood, the people, food and, of course, the loft.

It's quiet with double glass windows & is very child and dog friendly. There is even a small playground in the secure area and a nature playground around the corner. The building was an old telephone warehouse and sits directly on the water or "landwerkkanal" that runs though the city.

There is extra security at night, Berlin is quite a safe city, but that is nice when you come home late. There is also a doorman, which in Berlin is very rare!

The ceilings are 5m high and the loft is on the first floor with a lift. You have a private entrance and your own entrance room. The inner garden is a sea of small lights in the evening & the entire grounds are very artistic. Every area was designed after a different fairy tale.

The bus stop is directly by the back door, along with 2 food shops, a pharmacy, Asian grocery, the most famous pizza place in Berlin & many cute and wonderful coffee shops and bakers. Also many small shops that stay open until 3 am.

This is the perfect place to relax, write a novel, have a family vacation or explore this wonderful city. A playwrite spent 5 weeks here last year and wrote an entire play, which is now playing in Glasgow.

I am a professional songwriter and so there is a lot of creative energy & warmth here!!


More about us

  1. I am an American songwriter living in Berlin. I have done this exchange once before and it was a wonderful experience! I am actually very quiet and peaceful. I get inspiration from reading and being in a different environment. I will be in L.A. working in different studios in the area for 5 to 6 weeks and would like a peaceful place to live while I am there. My best friend would come with me. He would also be working on most days as well. We would take wonderful cafe of your house. I LOVE to garden and would also really love to take care for your pets. I have a doggie myself (he will stay with freinds while I am gone) so I am a wonderful & responsibile pet sitter.

Where is it?


This neighborhood is wonderful. Very international and open and friendly!! Most of the people in the building are friends and so if you need anything, you won't feel alone. Plus, there is a doorman for any questions. Quite a few artists, painters and designers live here and also work here, but it is very quiet at night.

The pictures just can't do justice to how nice this loft is. There is a garden in every different part of the building & a jogging path right outside the door that runs along the water through the whole city. You are in the center of Berlin, but there ar 3 parks within one block. Coffee shops and cafe's just outside the door!! You will love it here and feel very at home and welcome. It's the best of both worlds, peace and quiet but in the center of the city.

The summer in Berlin is also a hotbed of cultural happenings & events. There are long museum nights, outdoor symphony & movies, International markets to die for, boat tours with restaurants. It's just lovely and fun!
