In the heart of the buzzing Mitte neighborhood, Lux 11 is the latest creation from a dynamic minimalist duo, Claudio Silvestrin and his wife, Giuliana Salmaso. The 72 rooms (20 more are slated to open in early 2006), each a monolithic space, have open bathrooms finished in concrete and honey-colored wood. An Aveda spa occupies the ground floor, and a micro–department store, run by the former buyer for Quartier 206, one of Berlin’s poshest fashion emporiums, is adjacent to the lobby.
