Detention facility Tempelhof-Schöneberg


The subject of the restricted architectural competition is the expansion of the Juvenile Detention Center Berlin Tempelhof-Schöneberg. Due to the existing capacity problems and insufficient structural and spatial conditions, the JAA Berlin requires an expansion and a new structural-technical conception. An essential task of this project is the creation of an address through a new entrance area. In this context, a restructuring of the existing buildings is being developed.

Integrated building complex

Taking into account a demand- and function-oriented redesign, optimization processes are achieved that lead to an efficient and sustainable improvement of organizational processes. The result is a building complex that responds architecturally and in terms of design to the special location in a single- and multi-family residential area. The existing buildings will also be integrated into a single unit. The complex is organized functionally, clearly and uncluttered. Modular and system construction methods are used as well.
