Hard to believe, but - beside of the "Berlin Monument Award" - our modest private project has also been awarded with the "European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Award". This prize is considered to be the 'Oscar' of monument protection and the most important accolade for conservation of historical sites in Europe. Out of more than 8,000 listed monuments in Berlin we are one out of just three projects that ever received this honor. "The Jury was charmed and fascinated by the careful restoration of this small but important house on the 1925 UNESCO world heritage site (...) The restoration was based on intensive research, material evidence, surviving elements, photographs and knowledge of the design principles of its period. A rewarding work of restoration and renewal, it commemorates a highly significant phase in the history of civil architecture. The outcome is a lively and powerful combination of bold colours, reason and form brought together by design. The Jury strongly approved of the project’s power of example to comparable urban settings."
