This land on which the residence is built has a rich history that is directly related to philosophy. Both buildings are named after famous German philosophers – J.G.Hamann and J.G.Herder and not without reason, both of these Renaissance philosophers have lived here with a few years difference in the end of 18th century.
Main element of lobby is the library – 12 meters high BOOK SHELF, accented by huge “book pages” which hide countless bookshelves with books which is a shared library for home residents. The room is furnished with a variety of lounge furniture to spend time reading or briefly meeting with guests. The counter for the concierge is made of wood playing the theme of a bookcase design. Light coloured finishing gives a sense of endlessness to the already huge space and accentuates the bookshelf. The second floor of the shelf construction is made of glass so that the giant book’s opening does not steal the space effect. The view on Philosophers Alley with centuries-old maples opens through the glass walls, giving extra effect to the three storied lobby space.
