It was the furniture factory Emmler that commissioned this building on Kottbusser Damm with its beautiful façade details in 1906/07. An area spanning some 5,750 m² accommodated the furniture factory, the warehouse and the showrooms. The plot previously belonged to the Royal Prussian Railway Company, which in turn had leased it to the wood trader Emanuel Schiffer. In 1928, the first Woolworth branch in Berlin moved into the building. Its sales area is located on the ground floor to this day.
The Emmler Lofts boast a fascinating building structure and a comfortable support grid for loft offices. Room heights of around 3.40 m and the spacious historic windows create modern and light-filled working environments. The existing courtyards will also be upgraded to invite visitors to linger.
Kottbusser Damm is part of the border between the centrally located neighbourhoods of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and Neukölln. These trendy districts are known for their eclectic culture and nightlife. Many of the buildings along this busy road date back to the Gründerzeit era. The U-Bahn line 8 runs below the street, offering optimal connections to other hotspots in Berlin-Mitte.
