Description Change this

Schorlemerallee is a boulevard on the outskirts of Berlin, in the district of Dahlem. It was originally planned in 1901 as 'Street 35' as a street with a settlement of villa-like houses, but only when a subway station was built nearby in 1911, the construction really started.

The settlement which came to define the boulevard was only created in the 1920s and is seen as an important example of "New Ojectivity" architecture in Berlin. The settlement comprises the first residential steelframe structures to be built in Berlin.

The houses had several well-known inhabitants. The architect brother Luckhardt lived at No. 17, fellow architect Alfons Anker at No. 19 and film director Fritz Lang and his wife Thea von Harbou at No. 7.
