Affordable housing in a prime location in Berlin: 78 residential units and 2 commercial units, KfW standard 55.
A new building for degewo in a construction gap near Gleisdreieck. The urgency of affordable inner-city housing suggests that as many apartments as possible should be built at this location. A forecourt is formed at the corner with the narrow alley, avoiding the unexposed interior corner. No apartment is exclusively north-facing. The project shows floor plans common in the housing market. A more radical original variant, that challenges these usages in favor of more urban lifestyles, was rejected by the client.
