Viva City, Berlin

Creating living spaces that meet the different needs of seniors is one of the great challenges of our times, considering that the population’s average age is increasing and the social structure is also changing.
The “Haus Mattiasgärten” facility of the advita association that provides services and care for the elderly recently opened in the Friedrichshain district in Berlin. It’s a 48-apartment residential building designed by con-tura architekten, with no architectural barriers, where each unit is between 25 and 53 square metres and the facilities include community spaces and “on demand” healthcare on the ground and mezzanine floors writes a whole new chapter for this category of architecture. It was built by developer Kondor Wessels at the entrance of the Volkspark park and near the Vivantes Klinikum hospital.
