The high life

Art & Leisure

High shelves create space. And architects in big cities find themselves gazing towards the skies.

For evidence, look no further than the 98m hybrid high-rise planned for Berlin’s Kreuzberg district.

Its concrete core is made more sustainable by the presence of columns, floor slabs and other elements fashioned from wood.

Encompassing 29 floors, the development will for the most part comprise apartments, social housing and flexible, community spaces.

The lower levels, meanwhile, will accommodate nurseries, bakeries and cafes. A publicly accessible roof terrace complete with bar and sauna is the icing on the cake.

Warm wood, generous glazing and a green exterior – sounds like an oasis in the heart of the urban jungle.
