Rieck 1 Office Building, Europacity Berlin

New Office Building in Berlin’s Europacity

The building, designed by Kleihues + Kleihues Architekten, stands directly on Heidestrasse in Berlin’s Europacity and opposite Berlin central station. Construction of the building is already underway. Completion is scheduled for 2019.

The ground floor of the massive building contains a large assembly room with foyer and a two-storey cafeteria. The office floors on the upper levels impress with roof terraces and large conference areas. The primary challenge in the structural design was to find a solution for the column-free foyer and the conference and assembly room area with column spacing of up to 17 metres. With fire prevention, the two-storey cafeteria and foyer were the planning challenges. We were able to achieve both through investigation of variants and a combination of physical and technical measures.
