FRIEDENAUER HÖHE BERLIN 2024 — The new commercial building at Innsbrucker Platz is a hybrid figure. On the one hand part of the large square figure of Innsbrucker Platz and landmark along the magistrale Hauptstraße and on the other hand prelude and conclusion of the large urban figure of the new Friedenauer Höhe.
A narrow front to the Innsbrucker Platz shows the house as a square figure. Across the S-Bahn station it sees itself as part of the Innsbrucker Platz. The final free-standing "tower structure" furthermore shows its position on the traffic axis of the main street. The north facade reacts with simple volumes to the existing city edge to the traffic aisles, the south side shows itself as a finely differentiated, terraced urban model.
