B:HUB Berlin

To give B:HUB its own rhythm and scale the volume is folded, accordian-like, into a series of gently zig-zagging surfaces. Terraces, balconies and loggias are integrated into the building's volume at these folds. On each end of the bar the plan expands toward the city and widens and at the Rummelsburger Bay end, a nine-story tower extension accentuates the building.

Typical of our work, facades are developed as spatial layers formed with sculptural depth. The elevations of B:HUB are rhythmically organised by a grid of vertical and horizontal frames infilled with sills of white fluted. Two facade layouts are intended to further differentiate the building. The pilaster strips are dressed in white, fluted terracotta, the horizontal bands are of prefabricated exposed concrete. Large floor depths, high ceilings and exposed utilities characterize the loft-like and flexible nature of the building.
