Lützowplatz, 10785 Berlin
The Swiss owners of this award-winning apartment complex, designed by the late Oswald Martin Ungers for the IBA 1987, have been emptying it over the last five years or so. In fact half of the development was demolished in 2008. All in order to enable a more lucrative development to be built here.
The residents fought long and hard to retain their high quality homes, all with west-facing terraces and gardens. Around 70 low-cost homes have been lost here.
