FORMER BÖTZOW BREWERY, BERLIN, GERMANY
RENOVATION, MODERNISATION AND CONVERSION

After heavily being damaged in World War II, the buildings were never rebuilt. The masterplan of David Chipperfield Architects is based on restoring the previous structure and design of the brewery with large open areas while the building will receive new functions. The existing buildings will be complemented by new structures; which will create a new central space. The clinker façade with its industrial style of the previous century is complemented by modern architecture. The ensemble is completed by a public swimming pool and an art house. The Otto Bock HealthCare [house 1-4] will transfer its research and development labs into the historic brewery buildings. The buildings at the Saarbrücker Straße will contain a boutique-hotel with rehabilitation lofts for patients. The basement will be used for manufacturers, design and art.
Laborgh Investment GmbH commissioned DGI Bauwerk to undertake the HOAI work phases 6-9 for the existing buildings [house 1 to 4]. The challenge lies in the comprehensive renovation of the listed buildings, which will receive new functions. A construction process with stringent cost and schedule management is required to ensure all the constructive, fire protection and technical requirements in addition to a sophisticated design.
