Li18.Berlin Building News
The project on Lindower Strasse in Berlin, designed by Holzer Kobler Architekturen Zurich/Berlin in cooperation with zweikant architekturen (Cologne), is based on the contemporary aspiration of planning and implementing architecture in a sustainable and context-related manner.
With new residential and commercial units, existing commercial courtyards in the Berlin district of Wedding were repurposed and expanded, using timber hybrid construction methods.
A new seven-storey, tower-like building has been sympathetically built on the vacant lot and completes the typical urban Berlin block structure in a harmonic way. The “tower” is aesthetically connected with the new pavilion-like roof extension on top of the adjacent historic industrial building.
Due to the colour coated wood façade, the new building and roof extension produce a formal and subtly embedded unit. The buildings communicate equally with the existing building and the surroundings, accentuated by large format window openings. At the same time, the ensemble acts as a significant landmark.

Holzer Kobler Architekturen
Holzer Kobler Architekturen was established in Zurich in 2004 by Prof. Barbara Holzer and Prof. Tristan Kobler. Today, the studio operates internationally out of Zurich, Berlin, Cologne and Nyon and covers a wide spectrum of competences including urban planning and architecture, scenography and design. A multidisciplinary team made up of architects, designers, graphic artists and curators define its specific orientation in close collaboration with public and private sectors as well as a broad network that encompasses industry, science, art and culture.
The work of Holzer Kobler Architekturen focuses on programmatic innovation, aesthetic identity and the characteristics of context in their handling of archi¬tecture and space. The concept of Architekturen (architectures) can therefore be understood as an opening and extension of spaces for thinking as well as various other activities in architecture.
Artistic integrity, cultural and social values as well as sustainable developments within constantly changing demands regarding habitational and working environments are fundamental to all projects, from masterplanning to detail design. Instead of an easily recognizable form of articulation, the distinguishing feature of every project is its distinctiveness. The result is a trove of novel ideas reflected in the large number of unique creations.
