Maryam Zaree just moved into her new apartment in Kreuzberg, a beautiful two-room flat in a rather dull building from the 50s. After finding the spot, she had the somewhat dark and narrow floor plan completely remodeled after her own plans to give the space a very bright and airy feeling with its light grey floor and white walls. Although the work is far from finished, I already am convinced by the minimal feel and look of her apartment, being so different from the all too present “Altbau-Look” you find in Berlin.
Maryam is an actress who works in theater as well as in film, I met her at a dinner with friends and instantly liked her open-hearted and warm personality. She just recently finished working on a film with Tayfun Pipirselimoglu in Istanbul and is also playing in “Beg Your Pardon” at Ballhaus Naunynstraße. And we share a dear friend, Vladimir Karaleev, for whom she modeled in his current look-book and who’s clothing she often wears.
