Architect Swen Burgheim saw an opportunity to revitalize a rundown favorite Berlin hangout when it went up for sale nearly two years ago. Houzz contributor Nicola Enderle writes on about how this local pub was gutted and transformed into a home fit for a modern couple.

"The suspended ceiling was removed, giving the space 5 extra feet of air at the top, with the overall ceiling height now at 17 feet. Old industrial windows were installed in the masonry between the kitchen and living room to enable light to penetrate deep into the rooms. To prevent the rest of the loft from steaming up while cooking, you can close the kitchen’s newly installed swing doors. 'When renovating, I always take great care to remain loyal to the building’s era. The doors may be new here, but they are historic originals,' Swen Burgheim says.
