Annette Kicken

UMBOs in Berlin’s vibrant Mitte district is a stylish addition to the German capital’s repertoire of exclusive furnished luxury apartments. The classical residential building, located on one of the most beautiful streets of the » Scheunenviertel «, has been expanded and renovated with great attention to historical architectural detail. UMBOs is comprised of six apartments in different sizes and styles in the quiet side wing of the building. There are three generous suites that each stretch across two floors, and three more compact apartments, which combine a living room and a comfortable bedroom.

The eponym of the apartments is the legendary photographer Otto Umbehr (1902–1980), alias Umbo. In 1920s Berlin Umbo discovered photography, the play of light and shadow, the wild city as an immortal subject — and this is where he created his most famous work. All the apartments are named after a different Umbo photograph. The eclectic interiors are shaped by owner Annette Kicken’s passion for seeking and finding special pieces. The mix of famous mid-century classics combined with antique finds from flea markets and contemporary elements account for the unique and warm flair of UMBOs.
