THE PROJECT
OSKAR & HELENE

The new build residential development, Oskar & Helene, is conveniently located close to the heart of Berlin-Zehlendorf, within easy reach of the district shopping center and Zehlendorf’s expansive forests and picturesque lakes. The new Oskar & Helene development is being created on a 9,529sqm site,

comprising 50 condominiums in two buildings on this garden plot.
The ground-floor apartments each have their own exclusive gardens. A total of 6,330 sqm of living space is being developed, along with underground parking facilities for 79 vehicles.

LOCATION

In the exquisite villa district of Dahlem, on the site of the former Oskar-Helene-Heim hospital, Diamona & Harnisch is creating the new Oskar & Helene residential development. From the early nineteenth century onwards, Dahlem established itself as one of Berlin’s most noble neighbourhoods. Scientists, business leaders and artists were all drawn to the area, taking up residence in the countless imposing villas they constructed.

Numerous famous residents made this jewel in Berlin’s crown their home, including Hildegard Knef and Zarah Leander, helping to raise the prestige of this splendid residential neighbourhood even further.
Extensive parkland and verdant open spaces make this such a treasured part of Berlin. The new residential development’s immediate neighbours include the Thielpark and the Botanical Gardens. Three of Berlin’s most beautiful lakes are also within easy reach: Krumme Lanke, Grunewaldsee and Schlachtensee. 

This is where Berliner’s head to for respite from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Dahlem is also a beloved sport and recreation destination for all age groups. The local infrastructure is excellent, with the broad selection of shops at Truman Plaza just a short walk away. Doctors, schools and children’s daycare facilities are all also located in the immediate vicinity. The local subway station provides quick and convenient access to downtown Berlin.

The project is ideally situated for public transport. Bus stops and the subway station Oskar-Helene-Heim are only a few meters away from the development.
From the nearby Oskar-Helene-Heim subway station, you can reach the famous KaDeWe shopping temple at Wittenbergplatz in just 18 minutes. 
Shops for your everyday needs are conveniently located at the Truman Plaza shopping area.
An all-in-one health center provides an excellent range of doctors and medical facilities in the immediate vicinity. 
A bilingual children’s day-care center, Kiddies Family, is located closeby, and takes care of children from nine months to six years.
A well-designed cycle path leads from the development to the neighboring forest and continues to the verdant forest and lake landscape of Zehlendorf. 

ARCHITECTURE CONCEPT

On this extensive garden plot, Diamona & Harnisch is creating Oskar & Helene, a new residential ensemble of singular character. This near-natural site will be home to two newly developed, U-shaped buildings with up to four full storeys. A decorative garden will form their centerpiece.

The floor plans have been designed to meet the needs of a variety of future residents and are available in a uniquely broad range of sizes and layouts. Each unit is equipped with a balcony, loggia or terrace,

which, in combination with large-format windows, create a bridge between the interior living space and exterior landscape.

The building’s material composition echoes the high standards of the architectural concept. The facades combine plasterwork with brick to reflect the natural colors and tones of the buildings’ surrounding environs, and contribute to the intrinsic value of the ensemble’s appearance. The careful selection of materials continues in the design of the decorative garden, and the entrances and stairways that surround it.

The result is a singular place to live, linking the development’s private residential units with the communal green spaces in their midst.
