ALX / Alexanderplatz Trumpet Tower

How do we deal with a site whose footprint is not efficient for office space? How do we create a building of large capacity in a dense area of Berlin without taking away qualities from neighbouring buildings? And how do we innovate upon existing office typologies?

As a reinterpretation of the socialistic “Plattenbau” architecture, our answer is a building containing a mix of residential, commercial and office spaces.
The first 7 floors match the existing Berlin-block-structure, while the upper floors grow continuously outward, thus creating a high-quality office plan and a spectacular roof terrace providing the entire block with a quality that is largely absent in the current context: green outdoor space.
