Quartier 52 ° Nord - in the middle of Berlin - is a mix of apartments for all generations. The barrier-free apartments, which are builded directly on the Dahme convey a special quality of life. Here natural space, leisure quality and industrial charm are combined with peace and serenity. This is where Berlin comes to rest. An eight-meter-deep walkway in front of the actual building should lead the individual apartments very close to the water - so that the apartment and water seem to merge. The footbridge is a hybrid of private balconies or open spaces and at the same time an access element.
Quartier 52 ° Nord received the Award “deutscher Wohnungsbau 2020” an german Award for housing. The coherent overall concept played a major role here. Three materials are skilfully combined with each other and staged: wood, metal and concrete. In House 2, located in the middle, the apartments are connected to one another via the large-format floating walkway.
The metal look of our Carl Stahl ARC X-TEND stainless steel cable mesh give that certain thing. The application works as railing infill as well as fall protection in one. The mesh size of 40 mm guarantees the one hand safety and on the other hand a carefree view. A total of 710 square meters of mesh are used in this awesome project. In addition our stainless steel rope I-SYS has a diameter of 6 mm.
