This mixed-use building has become one of the most popular shopping destinations along the Friedrichstrasse.
The project is the centerpiece of an interconnecting three-block development intended to resuscitate pre-war Berlin’s main shopping street. Ultimately it was deemed economically and politically judicious to award the individual blocks to different developer-architect teams. Containing a retail concourse, offices, and residences, the building is organized internally around a central courtyard with a star-shaped skylight that floods interior offices and upper-level apartments with natural light.

A contemporary take on the traditional, intimately scaled architecture of the Friedrichstrasse, the facade evokes the diversity and incremental character of urban growth as it unfolds over time.
