Built in 1911 in a style typical of German Reform Architecture, the property stands out from the other older buildings surrounding it with its strikingly beautiful façade – its simple, elegant character is highlighted in the arrangement and design of the windows and balconies. Thorwaldsen House is made up of a front section and a garden section, which are connected to create one overall building. There was a cinema in the commercial unit on the ground floor from 1919 to 1959, which is why these rooms have such high ceilings — up to around five metres. Some of the original elements of the building have also been preserved in the stairwells.
With sizes between approx. 65 m² and approx. 111 m², the well-designed residential units with two, three or four rooms have spacious kitchens, private balconies, and bathrooms that mostly have natural light. A number of the residential units have decorative stucco rosettes around the light fittings on the ceilings, continuing the style of the façade – with its typical historical Berlin flair – in the interior of the building. The typical panelled doors and the beautiful wooden floors, with either floorboards or parquet, also add to the charm of the apartments.
