Seminar building HWR Berlin

Extension of the HWR campus

New construction of a teaching and seminar building as an extension for the school of Economics and Law in the university campus in Berlin-Schöneberg. A research landscape for the joint work of students, scientists and cooperation partners from the economy field is planned there. Seminar rooms and co-working spaces, areas that can be used flexibly and agilely for thinking and IT laboratories provide the spatial framework for contemporary teaching and project-based, flexible forms of work.

Urban development consolidation

The construction site is already developed with a 5-story existing building from the 1930s, which forms the urban dominant on an H-shaped ground plan with its mighty gable roof. The openly built-up part of the site envisages a 5-6 storey, U-shaped new building for university use and student housing with a day care center in the form of two building sections. This will round off the south side of the site in a closed construction and at the same time form a joint ensemble with the existing building via the inner courtyard that is being created.

Modern space and teaching concepts

The new seminar building is connected to the existing building on the ground floor, above which the seminar areas are flexibly divided over 5 floors. The facade of the building has structural sun protection with deep facade elements. The student housing building area includes approximately 200 units in shared apartments on 6 floors.
