Spacious, newly built apartments with custom-designed doors, handles, and lighting

Completed in 2012 with 17 apartments designed by architect Stephan Höhne, Ludwigkirch-Palais reflects a concept that incorporates historical references from the surrounding area. The "Ludwig" in question is Louis IX, the French king after whom the nearby St. Ludwig-Kirche (a church that also houses a number of Louis XI's holy relics) is also named.


In integrating an elaborate installation into the building's common areas, Berlin Marcel Bühler has explored the circuitous journey that eventually brought the king's relics to St. Ludwig-Kirche. This project was also the first to make use of doors, door and window handles, and external lighting designed exclusively by the Artprojekt group.
