Boulevard Berlin

Developer: Multi Veste Berlin
Architects: Ortner & Ortner Baukunst
Service: Element planning
Budget: €390 million

The new Boulevard Berlin shopping centre brings together two adjacent department stores, Wertheim and Karstadt, into a single shopping centre, based on a design created by Ortner & Ortner Baukunst. The street between the two stores, Treitschkestraße, was incorporated into the complex as a new covered pedestrian area. We created the element planning for the 2,000 square metre structure in sandblasted yellow prefabricated reinforced concrete for the exterior and interior façades of the second phase of construction. In terms of dimensional conformity, the curved façade constituted a planning and realisation challenge.
