This extensive mixed-use development of a large early 20th century industrial warehouse transforms the centre of a typical Berlin city block into a new urban amenity. Whilst providing a range of flexible and efficient office spaces, featuring timber flooring, exposed brickwork and fair faced concrete, the scheme enhances activity at courtyard level by providing meeting spaces for workers, visitors and residents.

 

The transformation of the building is highlighted by a two storey mirrored extension to one of the side wings; providing a juxtaposition to the existing textured brick facade through a highly reflective glass facade. In addition, the top floors of the warehouse are extended to accommodate a range of residential units, offering spectacular vistas over Berlin’s roofscape.
