Bruzkus Batek designed this sleek apartment with rich materials for a couple in Berlin.

Architects Ester Bruzkus and Patrick Batek clad the apartment's elevator core, which also contains closets, a guest bathroom, and the kitchen cabinets, with walnut paneling and built-ins. The are no formal dividing walls between the living, dining, and kitchen areas, ensuring that the light that pours in from the balcony reaches all of the public spaces.
