Spreefenster Hotel Berlin
Less is more
KREBS + KIEFER has developed the fire protection concepts for the hotel and office building in the immediate vicinity of the Ostbahnhof railway station in Berlin and is overseeing the completion of the construction project.
Its impressively generous ground floor design boasts open views of the river Spree. Both were made possible by the clever use of the location– instead of a continuous fire wall, the engineers made certain construction and equipment areas free-standing. In the two-storey underground garage, our fire protection experts combined a particularly effective smoke extraction system with a subdivision into smaller fire sections, thus making it possible to dispense with a sprinkler system which is expensive to purchase and maintain.
