Headquarter of the Federal Intelligence Service
The new headquarter of the Federal Intelligence Service stands on a 10 ha site in Berlin’s city center with a GFA of approx. 260,000 sqm and workspaces for 4000 employees. The concept was developed with a specific focus on its urban location. The high security requirements of the structure, as well as the image it presents, were of top priority. To minimise the visual impact of the massive structure it purposely avoids long façades by alternating long and short parts with courtyards in between.
Residential Tower at Alexanderplatz
The aim was to design a 150m high residential tower to be not just a new landmark, but also an entirely new type of building in Berlin. The design takes into consideration the diverse architecture of the surrounding buildings and combines them to create the Berlin residential high-rise. It's materiality and the design of the façade are impressive. Rising from a smooth base, the building develops upwards into a complex, three-dimensional structure which gains in plasticity from floor to floor.
Kudamm Karree Berlin
Based on extensive re-construction and renovation measures, the new Ku’damm Karree harks back to the origins of this vital city district. The interior block becomes a vibrant town square with a theatre pavilion and café. It acts as the central link to the newly created passages. In addition to office space, top-class commercial properties and a hotel are planned. Restaurants and cultural institutions will experience a boost, while roof terraces will increase the pleasure of visitors.
