Living a stone's throw from the heart of the city, while surrounded by nature: that's the reality of life at a new ecologically sound housing development in Berlin.

TILIA nestles in an idyllic lakeside location at Griebnitzsee where Berlin crosses over into Potsdam. Here, surrounded by nature, covering a total area of around 33.000 sqm, the project developer STOFANEL Investment AG has built around 50 villas and houses.

Built around a lake, the houses come in five categories, namely Villas, Dream Villas, Twin Villas, Gallery Houses and Atrium Houses. The villas and houses, with individual floor plans and living spaces ranging from 125 to 360 square meters and prices from €405.000 to €1,85 million, are in high demand. More than 50 percent of all houses have already been sold. The building works are continually progressing and can be observed from the TILIA showroom at lake Griebnitzsee.

Modern architecture and design meets nature

Together with the architect team QBQ & Partner, STOFANEL is planning modern and clear architecture with large window fronts and light-flooded rooms for maximum transparency. Carefully selected materials such as wood and natural stone, for example clinker, characterise the buildings and embed them individually in the surrounding nature.

“People look for homes in which they can find peace and regenerate themselves. To come home after a long, hard day at work and to look out onto the lake, at an unspoilt landscape, is a wish which we are making reality here at the Griebnitzsee lake,” says Giovanna Stefanel-Stoffel who founded STOFANEL Investment AG together with her husband, Ludwig Maximilian Stoffel.

“Particularly the unison of the outside and the inside, of nature and architecture, enables a joint and considerate living in and with nature.”

Ecology and sustainability of key importance

Furthermore, the consistent use of economical and renewable energy sources such as geothermal heat for heat generation, as well as the selection of ecological and recyclable materials, plays an important role for STOFANEL.

Living close to nature yet being part of the capital

In TILIA at lake Griebnitzsee, there is no trace of the hectic pace of the city. And yet, the hustle and bustle of two vibrant state capitals with a wealth of world heritage sites is so close at hand. This is what makes TILIA Living Resort unique.

Good schools, medical facilities and excellent shopping are all readily available thanks to fast access to the city: the rapid-transit railway will bring you to the well- known fashionable district of Kurfürstendamm in just 22 minutes, while the motorway is a mere 10 minute drive away.

There is something for everyone here: art and culture lovers, sailing enthusiasts, golfers and sport lovers.

The first villas in the TILIA Living Resort Griebnitzsee should be complete by autumn 2011, the whole project, including the established lake in the heart of the project, due in autumn 2012.
