Big Bold Color. It demands space to empower a room. These stunning examples of large splashes of pigment speak to simple gestures, not letting the space get too busy but rather placing sculptural, singular elements of focus in the room.

These spaces work so well because the saturation of hues are balanced.
“Designed by Gisbert Pöppler, The Hansaviertel Project is a full renovation of a private apartment owned by a prominent writer for the popular German television show “Verliebt in Berlin”. The property is tucked in the corner of a large modern apartment building, designed by Walter Gropius for the 1957 Interntational Building Exhibition, “Interbau”. As if intentionally planned to coincide with this important milestone, the renovation was completed just in time to celebrate the 90th year anniversary of this now classic modernist BAUHAUS experiment in urban living.” architectonic
