Cuvry Campus / Neuer Spreespeicher
Berlin | 2021
The approximately 9800 sqm site at Cuvrystrasse 50-51 in Berlin-Kreuzberg stretches from Schlesische Strasse to the bank of the River Spree. The Oberbaum Bridge and the East Side Gallery are only a few minutes' walk away. The new building is a multifunctional office campus with office spaces, gastronomic and retail units, and a publicly accessible, landscaped inner courtyard with a panoramic view of the Osthafen-Promenade in Rudolfkiez. The urban planning was by Reinhard Mueller; the architectural design, by TCHOBAN VOSS Architekten.

The building's structure and façade design make direct reference to the building's location in this former harbour area. The light-coloured clinker facades allude to the industrial architecture of the Osthafen, borrowing from the materiality of the old warehouses here.

The complex consists of two seven-storey blocks lining a conic courtyard that is open towards the water. Each block consists of three houses. The top three storeys are stepped-back in a staircase-type arrangement with long terraces. Towards Schlesische Strasse, a slightly recessed glass connecting building fills the gap between the two volumes; here visitors enter a bright, light-flooded lobby.

Vertical access in both blocks is via a staircase core and two lifts, while access to the basement is by two separate entrances to the underground car park, from Schlesische Strasse and Cuvrystrasse.

The buildings extending to the quay wall can be accessed on both sides through arcades. The green inner courtyard, which is open to the public during the day, and the wide, publicly accessible riverbank enhance the residential quality.

The building was certified DGNB Gold.
