Living at river Spree

Pysall Architekten as Architects

High-rises for housing at river Spree, Berlin I International competition for realisation 1. Prize 2012 I 36.900 sqm I Client Agromex GmbH & Co. KG I Pysall Architekten


Two slim apartment towers at the bank of the river Spree complete the skyline along the river at „Molecule Men“. The eastern tower is 99 m high and houses 101 apartments over 27 floors. The western tower is 110 m high and houses 120 apartments over 30 floors. The size per apartment reaches from 75 to 160 m2 respectively from 2 to 5 rooms. The apartments are inspired by „bungalow-living“ - with large terraces and ceiling-high panorama-windows.


The big terraces prevent fire spread from one floor to the other and allow ceiling-high windows and doors within the facade and an orientation to at least two cardinal directions from each apartment. Sun illumination, panoramic views and a close connection of in- and outside are optimized.


The entrance is situated trough a broad lobby and retail spaces on the ground floor. Car- and bike-parking as well as storage is organized over 3 underground floors with direct connection to elevators.
