From the administration building
to the heart of the Design District

Kantstrasse in Berlin-Charlottenburg is one of to the great historic boulevards of the city - and also to The most impressive, because at more than 2,600 meters, Kantstraße is one of the longest streets in Berlin. Since 1887, the street has borne the name of the philosopher Immanuel Kant - and since the turn of the millennium, it has increasingly been known as the "Design District". And this is mainly due to our house ...

In 1999 the home of the LIVING BERLIN was completed in 1999 - the five-storey commercial building at Kantstrasse 17 followed the previous administration building of Dresdener Bank, which had dominated Kantstrasse for many decades - designed by architects Nowotny Mähner & Assoziierte (Berlin) and Studio & Partners (Milan). Since then, the impressive window façade, which reflects the sky during the day and the street lighting at night, has remained unchanged - and since 1999, interior design of the highest quality and in many styles has been presented here.

Since its opening, around 40 tenants with monobrand showrooms or polibrand stores of national and international interior design brands and more have continuously made Kantstrasse 17 the top address for interior design in Berlin and beyond. And the heart of the "Design District" ...

The high quality of the collections and consulting services for all aspects of interior design planning, whether for private individuals or property development projects, continued to enhance the area along Kantstrasse around Savignyplatz and more and more interior design houses, kitchen studios, interior design offices and the like settled around this meeting point for design connoisseurs.

In this way, our hotel founded Berlin's Design District, which now extends - starting from LIVING BERLIN - in a star shape to Savignyplatz and the Memorial Church and, above all, into the many side streets of the district.

Since May 2021, the building has borne the name LIVING BERLIN - a statement of its roots in Berlin and in the lives of all Berliners, whether they were born here or have moved here.

And the name is also a statement about the interior design tradition of our company with all its stores, which continues to play a leading role in shaping Berlin's vibrant interior design scene today.
