Why oppose living and work ? privacy and company ? efficiency and art ? fun and sobriety ? The Oranien 10 loft has been designed to fusion all what life often opposes, as an embodiement of the Kreuzberg and Oranien straße spirit.
Two friends and working partners, nomadic, wanted a space where they would share work and leisure with others, while live in privacy. Where they could organise parties and be able to enjoy serenity. They aspired to the most modern way of life, supported by high tech but anchored in industrial tradition.
A former factory space, the Oranien loft counts 237 m² with a large open ‘live&work’ event space of 100 m² and 3 private suites with their attached bathrooms.
The Oranien loft provides a high tech ‘connected’ experience whether it is for access, music, lighting, coffee…
The loft can be used for individual uses alone or altogether combined. While in Berlin for a week, you can stay, sleep, work, do meetings, exhibitions, parties, all at the same time.

The interior design was realized by Kreuzberg based Thomas Hillig Architekten. The objective was to retain the distinctive large open volume as either a venue event space or as a living /working areas there while only partitioning the sleeping areas in the adjacent side-wings of the building.
Inspired by New York’s first lofts when converting the space, Hillig developed a loft atmosphere by combining the fireplace, the wooden floorboards, curtains and warm colours with solutions normally associated with industrial spaces, such as the electrical installation in simple suspended cable trays.
Hillig Architeken hand-picked the furnishings, choosing all of the objects – even those usually considered to be of minor importance.
