The design for the urban hotel is one of the concepts for the WerkBundStadt Berlin. The hotel tower offers about 80 guest rooms with 16 to 24 sqm on 7 floors above a high base floor with public uses and restaurants. The upper end is a rooftop club with lounge and bar as well as outdoor pool. The facade consists of red-colored water-painted coal-fired bricks and gives the expressive building its punchy and post-industrial appearance in the context of the neighbouring industrial buildings of the Charlottenburg cogeneration plant.
More than 30 architectural companies from Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland were working in a cooperative process on the ‘WerkBundStadt’ project on an area of around 22,000 square meters on an industrial site in Berlin-Charlottenburg on the Spree River bank. Three different building concepts were developed by each of the thirty architects on selected plots of land. It is the vision of a new urban quarter with about 1,000 residential units, commercial, hotels and infrastructure for the ‘Modern Living and Living of the Future’.
