Palais Varnhagen

Based on plans desi­gned by glo­bal­ly renow­ned archi­tect Sir David Chip­per­field, Artprojekt crea­ted a plat­form for open-minded, inter­na­tio­nal indi­vi­du­als inte­rested in design and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. This luxu­ry building’s 48 apart­ments and three pent­hou­ses and is based at a tru­ly unpar­al­leled loca­ti­on in down­town Ber­lin (Fran­zö­si­sche Stra­ße). Near­ly all of the units had alre­ady been sold befo­re the building’s shell was com­ple­ted.


In a series of large-scale works on dis­play at Palais Varn­ha­gen, Ber­lin artist  Chris­ti­an Hoischen explo­red the ami­ca­ble rela­ti­ons­hips bet­ween the project’s names­a­ke, Rahel Varn­ha­gen (who mana­ged her famous litera­ry salon just a few doors down around the year 1800), and her dis­tin­guis­hed con­tem­pora­ries.
