1st place in competition for housing in Berlin-Köpenick

In the PANDION AG competition for a six-story residential building on Bahnhofstraße in Berlin-Köpenick, the design by blocher partners unanimously prevailed and was awarded 1st place by the jury.

On the approximately 7,300 square meter site in the center of Köpenick, around 140 apartments are to be built, as well as commercial space with gastronomy on the first floor. At least 50 percent of the apartments will be barrier-free. The plans envisage living in the area of tension between history, urbanity and woodland. The urban development concept of the design was particularly emphasized. It takes appropriate account of the adjacent listed buildings from the 1930s, the Gründerzeit urban structures along Bahnhofstrasse and the Forum Köpenick.
