Location: Berlin-Prezlauer Berg

A high-quality new commercial building is being constructed on the site of Schönhauser Allee 9 in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg. The exposed inner-city site is being given a new building to close the gap, which is arranged as an elongated structure in the centre of the site. The exterior space is framed by the new building and the brick walls of the adjacent old buildings. This creates several connected courtyards. They are characterised by the aesthetics of the new building and the old brick walls. The connected yards serve as passageways to the neighbouring properties.

Vegetation is used as urban wilderness. For example, there are wall greening, green islands in the pavement areas, roof gardens and roof terraces. Buildings and open spaces are thematically intertwined, creating a multifaceted place of work that offers a wide variety of recreational qualities in the outdoor areas on the roofs and courtyards. Rainwater is collected on all building roofs (retention roof) and used for greening and air cooling. As a result, the inner-city space and place of work is climatically improved and acquires an additional quality.
