The façade of Berlin's Sapphire apartment building is another gem by architect Daniel Libeskind. True to its name, the building towers over the corner of Chausseestraße and Schwartzkopffstraße with a shimmering façade ranging in colour from silver to blue to green.
The façade presents itself with edges and corners with a partial 180 degree rotation of the façade material. Behind it are 73 apartments and a supermarket. Our undercut anchor holds the fort here as well: it reliably ensures that the façade has embellished Berlin Mitte since 2017.
