This two-story apartment in Berlin really rocks. Haus JJ was designed by NOWlab, who are famous for their slide stairs. But in this two-story apartment, located on the 4th and 5th floors, they used a different wow – a fireman’s pole! Hidden behind a sliding bookcase, it’s not meant to be a feature, but more of a fun quirk, leading to the home office. The regular stairway is almost as unique – a spiral staircase and with a rope for a railing. There’s no balustrade at all. And it has the most unusual skylight. There’s a wooden floor with fantastic chevron-shaped planks in assorted colors. The designers say they styled the pattern of the floor after the wild wine plant growing on an outside wall. The interesting pattern follows up the spiral staircase treads as well. The whole apartment flows like that, with design elements leading into each other, complimenting and accenting the individual areas. And the toilet is a jungle – with photo murals of, well, the jungle, covering the high walls. The white wall-mounted toilet is in stark contrast. It’s an apartment with many unique, playful features – located in the center of one of the most vibrant cities in the world. What’s not to love?
