The cb19 co-housing building features flexible customized apartment layouts, meaning no two flats are alike. Designed by Zanderroth Architekten in Berlin, floor plans got to be selected by future owners since the building's design didn't necessitate load-bearing walls.

The floors were built with hollow spaces between cement panels to create strong but lightweight levels. This lent to the ability for the apartments to lack supportive walls -- giving owners and architects design flexibility. While many created two or three bedroom apartments, there were also some who joined two or four apartments together to create unique penthouses.

These customized apartment layouts appeal to the younger generation of home owners who enjoy showing individuality and personality in everything they own. At the same time, co-owned buildings like this are becoming more popular in Europe as they provide an economical and united method to condominium living.
