Quarters at Tacheles


About the project:
A multipurpose quarter is to evolve on the roughly 25.000 square metre site of the former art space Tacheles: high-value condominium, trade and commerce as well as one or several accommodation facilities, a cultural venue and possibly gastronomic business. The history of the legendary luxury department store and art space is to be taken up. An urban-planning concept of the Swiss architectural bureau Herzog & de Meuron was presented to the Berlin administration. The essential conditions for the district development are fixed.
Our potential assessment suggested the integration of two accommodation facilities into a lively quarter: the immediate participation in the neighbourhood. Combined with the special identity of the neighbourhood, its culture and its tradition. A product reduced in the best sense for an urban nomad as well as an object which caters to the needs of generosity in size for the international traveller with larger luggage or travelling in a larger group or with family. Livelihood and a conscious opening towards exterior guests meet peace and relaxation. Urbanity due to its most central location in the Berlin district Mitte meets idyll and nature – for which Berlin is renowned for, too.
Tradition, history, culture, adventures. Courageous and unique. Authentic. The quarter around Tacheles: The place to be in Berlin.
