RE-
IMAGINING
THE CITY

Our design originated in the idea of repairing the city in analogy to the goals that the International Building Exhibition of 1987 (IBA) defined. What we mean by “repair” in this context is the opportunity that infill densification presents when the qualities and specificities of a location are properly taken into account, in this case the IBA structures next door.

Closing the perimeter block at Wilhelmstrasse 118 is accomplished via a uniform façade in loft-like basic skeleton structure whose reddish architectural concrete, broken up by carefully inserted cutbacks, picks up on the standards set by the adjacent buildings, and whose delicate and yet openable window profiles are firmly rooted in the here and now.

The building pays homage to traditional industrial architecture in Kreuzberg. A lofty floor-to-ceiling height and characteristic incisions ensure that the building’s interior with its depth of over 20 metres is bright with daylight throughout, and that fascinating lines of references to the outside world are established.
