For many years the pro­per­ty on Franz-Mehring-Platz has been lying fal­low, aban­do­ned and without shel­ter to the ele­ments, pati­ent­ly wai­t­ing to be ful­ly res­to­red to its for­mer glo­ry – a cen­tral living area wit­hin the quar­ter. The objec­ti­ve of this novel deve­lo­p­ment is to replace the exis­ting dila­pi­da­ted struc­tu­re with a new apart­ment buil­ding housing modern retail faci­li­ties, mea­ning­ful­ly enhan­cing the ent­i­re neigh­bor­hood as a result.

A struc­tu­re with seven full sto­ries will be erec­ted along three resi­den­ti­al streets, name­ly Franz-Mehring-Platz, Rüders­dor­fer Stra­ße and Singerstraße.

So as not to gene­ra­te bother­so­me par­king traf­fic wit­hin the quarter’s bounds, par­king units for resi­dents will be situa­ted in an under­ground car park bene­ath the buil­ding. The ground floor abo­ve will be deve­lo­ped into a retail space along with desi­gna­ted cus­to­mer par­king, occu­p­ied by one of Germany’s major retailers.
Resi­dents will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to dwell in the pri­va­te green courty­ard with invi­t­ing play and gar­den spaces that will be built on the first floor. While various gar­den the­mes will be imple­men­ted in terms of use and design, the urban gar­den for instance is meant to encou­ra­ge inter­ac­tion bet­ween resi­dents of The FRANZ. The gree­ning of the courty­ard and roof are­as will vast­ly impro­ve the micro­cli­ma­te of the ent­i­re quarter.
The archi­tec­tu­re of the buil­ding with its vary­ing faça­de struc­tu­re media­tes bet­ween seri­al tec­to­nic and for­mal ele­ments of the sur­roun­ding buil­ding typo­lo­gies with the idea of tra­di­tio­nal moder­nism and a con­tem­pora­ry design language.

The ground floor is struc­tu­red dif­fer­ent­ly in order to give Franz-Mehring-Platz a reco­gniz­ab­le shape and cha­rac­ter as a quar­ter squa­re. The ent­ran­ce to the retail shop with a cafe invi­tes all resi­dents to com­mu­ni­ca­te and inte­gra­te wit­hin the new building.
The new resi­den­ti­al units pro­vi­de a con­tem­pora­ry ans­wer to the indi­vi­du­al needs of modern living habits. Dif­fe­rent wis­hes were taken into account and futuristic-oriented
chan­ges will be inclu­ded. This crea­tes a city modu­le that enri­ches the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of the exis­ting city quar­ters with the most varied of cha­rac­ter in today‘s Berlin.
The new emer­ging pro­ject, with its mixed use, will both bene­fit the quar­ter and its resi­dents living in the neigh­bor­hood, eli­mi­na­te the exis­ting rui­ned struc­tu­re and obvious­ly would also off er a new home for Ber­li­ners wit­hin the neighborhood.
