Prefabricated Green Residential Building Slated for Berlin’s New ‘Live-Work City’
26 Sep, 2016

On a site in Berlin that is currently home to old, ugly oilfield tanks, a revitalized district called WerkBundStadt is in the works. WerkBundStadt include 1,100 units, including 330 rent controlled units. Each of the 33 architectural firms involved will design one project for the new district, which ingenhoven architects describe as a “dense, socially and functionally mixed live-work city.”

Central to the design of the building ingenhoven architects will contribute is the concept of sustainability. The facade of the building includes terraces and balconies bursting with plant life between brickwork to create “protected outdoor areas” that create a “dialogue between residential and urban space.”
