“The constant change is what I like the most about living here,” says Angelika Taschen in this month’s instalment of In Residence. “Every day something new happens, a new building rises.” Having spent 23 years working with her now ex-husband Benedikt Taschen at his eponymous publishing company, in 2011, Taschen — the daughter of bookshop owners — established Angelika Publishers, an independent publishing house that has carved out a distinct niche celebrating interiors and architecture.
It is a passion evidenced by her stunning Prenzlauer Berg apartment, in which muted grey and ivory tones are punctuated with bursts of vivid color, from an Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chair to a covetable wall-to-wall bookshelf. Explains director Matthew Donaldson: “The period features of the apartment were preserved in their entirety, which make a striking backdrop for Angelika's collection of photographs and art.” The globe-trotting publisher enlisted famed British architect David Adjaye OBE to design the blanched apartment, who linked the social spaces of the home with the more private rooms and bedrooms via a long, dark-charcoal corridor adorned with prints by Thomas Struth and Juergen Teller. Says Taschen: "I only like authentic interiors––when the person in it has a soul and is behind every single detail."
