  • Unité d'Habitation of Berlin is a building with 530 flats on 17 floors located in Berlin, Germany, designed by Le Corbusier following his concept of Unité d'Habitation. This concept was materialised in four other buildings in France with a similar design. The berlin-version was created for the Internationale Bauausstellung in 1957 (Interbau). The building was constructed in béton brut (rough-cast concrete). The structure was built with on site prefab cast concrete panels and poured ceiling slabs.

  • In use, all exterior surfaces have been painted. Heritage protected since 1996.
