About the Property
Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-5)
Miniloftmitte's downtown studio apartment is (45 sqm /450 sqft) is located in a stunning, prize winning building that combines a new building with renovation of an existing structure from the nineteenth century. The architects/designers are also the owners of the apartment, and have their own apartment in the building with their family. Architecture buffs love it here!
The apartment allows you full independence while enjoying your stay in Berlin in a unique atmosphere. The generous floor plan allows you to indulge in the modern luxury of pure space. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, and we provide all-organic products and cleaning supplies.
All major public transportation routes can be easily reached from this central location, and so many Berlin attractions are within walking distance (Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Alexanderplatz, Berlin Wall museum).
There are supermarkets and excellent restaurants and cafes within five minutes walk.
The Building - Phase 1: Britta Jürgens and Matthew Griffin, the architects who run the minilofts, also developed and designed the buildings.
The miniloft building was built on the property Hessische Str. 5 in two phases from 2001 – 2004. It is a complex interweave of renovation and new construction.
When they bought the property in 1999, the rear wing which now houses the classic minilofts was a run down building from the 1890's typical of Berlin Mitte.
In the first phase the architects completely transformed the narrow original wing by renovating the existing apartments.
The Building - Phase 2: In the second phase, the modern miniloft building (bender), was constructed in the overgrown bomb site at the front of the property. Its three bent stainless steel ribbons embrace the existing rear wing behind and navigate between the buildings on either side.
The building has received several prizes, and been internationally published in many magazines and books.

About: We are architects who run the minilofts - we also developed and designed the building. We also live in the building in our own apartment, with our two kids Theo and Odile. We took care of every detail so that you can have a wonderful stay in Berlin! -Britta Jürgens and Matthew Griffin
Why Mitte, Berlin, Germany:
We built the Minilofts on a partially destroyed lot (from WWII), close to the former line of the Berlin Wall. After the wall fell, East Berlin was a thrilling place, full of opportunity and energy. And 20 years later, it still is! Only now there are plenty of shops, galleries and restaurants in the neighborhood.
