“John F. Kennedy Haus” Berlin

The office building in immediate vicinity to the central station and the Government Quarter is one of the four urban blocks of Lehrter Stadtquartier. In the façade surfaces of light natural stone alternating with recessed glazing define the outer shell, with the rear, fully glazed façades opening towards the planted inner yard. In order to structure the height of the building, two storys are formally merged by the shapes of the windows, which, by slightly varying heights, take up a dialogue with the other blocks which were composed along the same design principles.
