The site is a 10 hectare brownfeild site that houses Peter Behrens Haus, an important early industrial architectural work of significant importance, design for AEG by Peter Behrens. The masterplan seeks to enhance this building with a wider campus of office and manufacturing space, supported by a new residential neighborhood and district centre.
The Masterplan seeks to connect existing and new spaces, whilst providing new and memorable places. The proposed new Bridge link fulfils the wider City objective of connecting the Northen and Southern Spree banks at Schoneweide. In doing so, the terminating vista provided by the Peter Behrens Haus now becomes a view point in a progressive journey from North to South. New places are made possible at the river crossing.
