The unique LUX is created in the direct proximity of the Brandenburger Tor near to the elegant and calm Neustädtischen Kirchplatz. Its extraordinary Architecture and its 64 convenient Real Estate Propertys satisfy claims on the highest level. Annette Axthelm and Henner Rolvien belong to the quietly famous of the capital city region. They prefer to retreat to a position behind the architecture, letting the buildings speak for themselves. Their designs are works of art and satisfy the most stringent requirements in terms of functionality and comfort. They are powerful but never presumptuous
LUX lies in the slipstream of Unter den Linden and Friedrichstrasse in an uncompromisingly central yet at the same time peaceful location on Neustädtischer Kirchplatz. The square is the historic centre of Dorotheenstadt, which was founded in 1673 directly next to the medieval twin town of Berlin-Cölln in the west. In 1678, the first new church in Berlin since the reformation was built here. The present day park comprises the church garden, which over the years has taken the form of an abundantly planted green oasis in the city centre. Today, the square marks the threshold of architectural innovation within an historic context. Only now has the Neustädtischer Kirchplatz at the junction of Dorotheenstrasse, Mittelstrasse and Schadowstrasse regained its natural function as a place of retreat and recreation.
It compasses the city's spirits
The LUX building site is located where the artistic quarter of Auguststrasse meets the luxurious residential streets close to Gendarmenmarkt. Embraced by the River Spree, protected by Friedrichstrasse and cradled by the boulevard Unter den Linden, LUX encompasses both the city`s spirits: creativity and political power. Around the corner and at the 'Kranzler' in particular, princes and generals sat in their 'grenadiers’ helmets'. Politicians and journalists met at 'Stehely' in Charlottenstrasse, whilst today they lunch at Café Einstein, just metres away from LUX. The federal government, the capital`s ARD and ZDF television studios, the federal press office and national library are just a stone`s throw away.
Amazing Rebirth of an exciting Metropole
The cultural 'post reunification' of Berlin has spread out in concentric circles from Hackescher Markt. Berliners left their city and young people came from Stuttgart, Hamburg, London and Toulouse. The galleries in Auguststrasse founded the reputation of Berlin as the capital city of contemporary art and Berlin's legendary nightlife flourished in the clubs. To the south of the Spree, the construction of Jean Nouvel's Galeries Lafayette in 1996 at Gendarmenmarkt heralded a civilised alternative to the wild culture around Hackescher Markt. Today, there are no reservations. With restaurants such as the 'Grill Royal' or 'Cookies and Cream', the former Auguststrasse street scene is now on an equal footing with the 'Borchardt' in Französische Strasse or the Michelin-starred 'Fischer´s Fritz' in Charlottenstrasse.
The Spree river and the Unter den Linden are both minutes away
