The video shows a two-bedroom appartment in the Lindenhof-Gardencity of 1920. GeWoSued chairman Norbert Reinelt explains that having an own bathroom and a garden was a great achievment for carpenters and workers in Berlin of the 1920ies where overcrowded tenement-blocks were normal. Building historian Heinz Schauss detected the original materials and colors. They were reconstructed whereas modern infrastructure was implemented. The original use of the rooms was kept with the large central kitchen and an adjacent bath room which leads directly to the household garden. Self support was vital in the years after the first world war. A cabinet functionned as a cold room for the garden’s products. The large kitchen is previous to the housig reforms in the late twenties that brought the small ergonomically functional kitchens to standard. The museum-appartement can be rented by the cooperative’s members to lodge their guests in a unique historical setting. Here they can experience a deceleration from today’s life.- The 90 years of the GeWoSued history are presented in another video you can watch here:
