As an exclusive residential complex, GLINT combines the charisma of the Wilhelmine era with the cosmopolitan charm of contemporary Berlin. The courtyard is an important piece of the puzzle: situated in between the elaborately restored, historic buildings and the new structure, it functions as a bridge between the past and the present, both symbolically and architecturally. Designed by the renowned von Bothmer architects, this oasis is characterised by openness, light and fascinating visual axes. The stark contrast between historic clinker bricks on the court facades and the whitewashed stone lining the modern building is particularly eye catching. The individual stones form intricate patterns, showcasing an interesting historical detail.
In addition, there are lovely artistic details to discover in the numerous old niches and garden areas, as well as greenery planted on several elevated plateaus. Ornamental plants, such as juneberry, hosta and exotic ferns, provide beautiful accents. Hydrangeas snaking up the walls delight the eye: these picturesque, lush green climbing plants bloom with delicate white flowers, are winterproof, reach a length of up to 15 meters and create a soothing atmosphere.
