On the left the very well known guesthouse "Fuerst Bismarck"




The buildings on the right where demolished in late 80`s and this beautiful "block" was put up in the early 90`s for students. Owned by government.


Let us turn 180 degree.






The block straight will be demolished.


there is a large underground entrance in this house. That is the reason for keeping this build for now.


Former buildings.


We turn into the "Breite Strasse", corner "Dortustrasse". Office building from the IHK


Here the "Breite Strasse", the commie block on the right will be torn down. On the left the "Hiller-Brandsche Buildings and the Military Orphanage.






On the former horse stables:

Now a different example. The new houses here are in the same quarter. The developer is very popular and likes to build more like this 20`s style. The construction style is called "Reform Style"

Update time! Kongsnaes:







Let`s jump to the other side and check out an update of the "Villa Jacobs" at lake "Jungfernsee". The project was presented here before. The Villa was build 1835 and fell after war in despair. The building was demolished in the 1980`s. The build was rebuild 2009 faithfully. In todays news is the planned reconstruction of the villas park. By the way: Once every year, the private owner opens to the public (free) for two days and celebrates a Weinfest. You know, with fermented grapes! Cheers!








Tents for the Weinfest. http://villajacobs.de/event/weinfest...bs-in-potsdam/

pictures from Vulgow, thanks!

The old/future park will be with grapes of course.

Hello everyone!
Today we have to start looking at a lot of updates and we also will start a mini series within this series! I like that sound. So, it could take two, three days so please sit back and enjoy!


I like to start with some renovated and reconstructed private villas. In this mini series we will cover the so called "Persius villen". Fancy houses build for the well to do between 1830`s to the 1850`s by Mr. Ludwig Persius.

We start with Villa Jacobs, since we already talked about this reconstruction.
The villa was build 1842 for the industrial Ludwig Jacobs. Jacobs ordered the replacement of a just seven year old villa on the same spot. He had made his money with sugar and railways. Anyway, the villa became a 37 meter high tower in the style seen in Florence added and started a new trend. The park was designed by Hermann Sello, chef of the royal parks by the plans of star designer Peter-Joseph Lenné.
In 1886 the house was rented by Prince Alexander von Preussen and renamed Villa Alexander. Kaiser Wilhelm II bought the Villa 1896.
In 1934, during the Roehn Putsch, Konrad Adenauer was kept in the Villa by the SS. He later became German Chancellor.
After the war the building was seized by the Sowjets and used as kindergarten for their Top Personal. After the construction of the Berliner Wall 1961 the building was to close to the death-strip. The building sat empty and fell in despair. After a fire the building was demolished 1981.
Between 2005 and 2008 the building was faithfully reconstructed by Architects Marianne and Stefan Ludes. Right now, the 45 000 sq meter Park is under reconstruction!.


1979 this is


Today


The exact same spot in 1993. Before reconstruction...




The tower foundation 1993.


Year 2013.

Persius Series II
This is Villa Schoeningen. The villa was introduced some pages before. This villa was build 1826 and redesigned by Persius 1843-45. Named after C.K.W. von Schoening. He was the seneschal, master of ceremonies (Hofmarschall) of Prince Carl Glienicke at Schloss Glienicke. After the Berlin Wall was build the building sat empty and became a ruin with collapsed roof when the rebuild began 2007!
Unfortunately, the last owner and last residence, Mrs. Hildegard Wallich died 1989 at age 101. Not knowing that the DDR would collapse and the property would have been given back to her one, two years later.










Persius liked blue on his designs! lol










Villa Schoening, 2012








Year 2014




The former Reichsstrasse 1

Hello and welcome to our Persius series part 3 (of 7)
This is the former residence of Ferdinand von Armin. It is located right next to Persius own reconstructed house. Von Armin was the colleague of Persius. Persius died 1845 and Von Armin finished many of his works.
This building is located at "Weinbergstrasse 20", build 1859 to 1860 by Von Armin. The location is right next to the Winzer house and the Weinberg, with is another green-space reconstruction, with the wine grapes replanted. Potsdam`s Arc de triumph is also close by and on the other street side located is the Egyptian Obelisk with one entrance to the Park of Sanssouci!
The east German government used to use the Villa for offices. She is now residential again. This is the view from the redone vineyard:



The vineyard in the back, Arc de Triumph on the left:










In the back the Egyptian Obelisk and on the right the tower of the Friedens-kirche,






Little pavilion, like the one at Glienicker Park.


Green pergola, nice:


The front. Dark blue, the signature color of Persius.







thanks, Spreetunnel!

Hello, now an update of our Keller-Tor-Wache reconstruction!
The building is not finished just jet, but is getting along very well!






The color is royal red. The build was painted this way till 1918. After that yellow until 1934. After 34 to 45 it was red again.






The dots are from the camera


The stairs are sandstone






One way to stay dry, so next to a canal. The neighbors get wet feet first!-)






North side, facing canal




Livingroom. The owner likes darker colors. lol


Here an old picture from before the war. The windows are better today. The timber frame building was back then a new storage for a business.


There are no better recorded pictures from the back apparently.








Southside






Handmade: Of real stone, the helmet.






The original city wall for tax purposes, open for public again.


The original building was also part of the Stadt Mauer,aka City Wall. It was a Tax Office!




And hold your horses, this side is not finished yet, including the widows


From a Boat


This view is from the "Heilig-Geist-Turm" The more bad then good reconstructed tower from the former Heilig Geist Church, witch was rebuild in the 1990`s as nursing home.


This one, from all the way up there!!

Konstantindegeer,

The yellow stairs had to be used by frank1204 for the air shot!!! People are almost dying to feed this thread! ha ha

Pictures are from user frank1204.

Hello, update is calling. I am slow, I know, I needed to update Dresden first and I am between jobs.

The eight corner crossing is still not moving ahead. The owner likes to sell condos for 5000 par sq/m. The land was 600 par sq/m. Way, way to expansive. They are trying to sell condos for five years now to start the reconstruction! Way to expansive.



This is the third sign they had to put up over the years, because the condos are to expansive.

Thanks, Potsdam-fan and frank1204!

Good news from the Norwegian Village!

After adding another layer of insulation on the roof, the roofing started. It is the same wood, just treated different.














And one of the captain Houses is seeing a refresh! Oh, joy!

And we are back with our mini-series about the builds of Mr. Persius and his school of architects. This series is a good example of how Potsdam used to look like. Everything was down out and fallen in despair. Compared with today, its a different town!

This is the villa Henkel. Located "Grosse Weinmeisterstrasse 43, Am Pfingstberg". The building was build 1868 to 1870 for a Bank director named Hermann Henkel. The surrounding park is today a part of the Parks Potsdam.
Villa Henkel 1990




Villa Henkel 2003


Villa Henkel 2010


Public! Garden Party 2012



Thank you, Spreetunnel!
