Architect Philipp Mohr, who was raised in West Germany, was always drawn to the Bauhaus aesthetic even when in the late 1990s many of these modernist buildings were in decay. ‘At that time, I felt like an archeologist, discovering true modernism for the first time,’ says Mohr, who shares his time between his practices in Brooklyn, New York, and Berlin.

Mohr, who had been a fan of the influential architect since he attended a retrospective exhibition as a teenager in the 1980s, purchased the apartment in 2016 with the intention of refurbishing and selling it.
When the Brutalist Unité d'Habitation building in Berlin was constructed in 1958, its interior plan was drastically altered following a disagreement between Le Corbusier and the local planning authorities.
