THE BREW BERLIN

In collaboration with s1 architektur.

The Brew forms one of the first steps in the transformation of the former Bärenquell Brauerei in the Treptow-Kopenick neighborhood of Berlin. After the closure of the brewery in 1994 the complex was left empty and became a breeding ground for graffiti and street art. Our four core concepts for the complex take inspiration from its history. We keep the graffiti and urban culture and the materiality of the original buildings. By opening the building up and adding program, we create a new urban connection between the Bärenquell complex and the surrounding neighborhood and activate the area even more. By adding a new tower to the existing building, we create an icon that is visible along the Spree.
