Suhrkamp HQ | Mitte | Pro


Architects Website



The new HQ of the renowned german Publisher Suhrkamp Verlag
is part of an Ensemble grouped around a small urban square.

The site was formerly occupied by a dense housing and commercial block by Hans Poelzig.
In Reconstruction, public space is expanded on to the site,
the urban fabric continues into the interior courtyard of the neighbouring building.
The ensemble is a part of our urban scheme on this central square which aims to replace the rigidly hierarchic Berlin block with a more open,
heterarchical view of the city, its society and its architecture.

Roger Bundschuh Architekten


Project Facts

- Builder: Suhrkamp Verlag AG
- Investor: IBAU AG
- Architects: Roger Bundschuh Architekten
- Usage: HQ of the Suhrkamp Verlag (Publishing Company)

This is the area two weeks ago.
They wanted to start the construction in this month so maybe the groundwork started already.

Soulless architecture wherever we look!

All the Berlin Modern Classical euphoria aside, projects with dignity, quality, elegance and timeless aesthetics are still quite an exception, sadly. Many of these buildings will look dated and boring the day they are completed already, like 60s/70s nondescript boxes.

To be honest, except for the last one, these projects are boring. I've studied last two pages and didn't even want to check for more.

This one and the page before are as ugly as sin!

I now actually feel bad for going over to the Vienna thread, bashing the city for its ugly modern shoeboxes, while mentioning Berlin as a good example with quite a lot neo traditional architecture. Seems those times are over, or is maxxe especially focussing on the worst projects in Berlin?

The projects have gotten worse but the coverage on this thread has also gotten more complete (which is good ). There is a lot of ugly/boring stuff though and Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt are all seeing far better projects these days.

There is a lot of trash going to be build on Berlins construction sites nowadays. Even in the city centre, like the Motel Onenear the Alexanderplatz. You have to look around a lot to find a good project. It seems as if there is a rule in Berlin that says:
DON'T BE CONSPICUOUSLY! AND RESPECT YOUR SOURROUNDINGS! That applies to almost every new construction in Berlin ...
But it is also a question of taste. I kinda like that minimalistic style that is used in the Müllerstraße 12 project you can see on this page. This style is used quite often in Berlin nowadays. The rule that you have to respect your surrounding applies to that style but in a pretty elegant and modern way. The Grandaire is also an example of that style .. i absolutely love it.

The neo traditional new Berlin style you mentioned Tiaren is used pretty often but those are often pretty small projects. But you are right ... i should concentrate on those a lot more because they make up the city in large amounts.

Bold architecture doesn't shy away from outdoing and overwhelming the existing ambiance of a site. It is a pity that these days it takes a starchitect to have the power and clout to push down the risk averse planners and neighbors innovative and in-your-face projects that completely sever the relationship with pre existing styles in the same street or neighborhood.

An example is the project "zoom" at Zoo. You used to have a gritty post war complex with the Beate Uhse museum and it was a part of the old zoo area known from popular culture in movies and music. It was gritty, but authentic. Foremost, the Beate Uhse museum was a cultural institution hanging on by the skin of its theet given they could retain status quo.


I`d condone of sacrificing it for a "bold" highrise, as some proposed. In stead it is sacrificed for a 0-8-15 commercial building which you could find in any minor city from Hildesheim to Offenburg. It "fits" the environment and the interests of the nearby hotels.

I think this would be a quite nice current example. It's the new HQ for the BundeswehrVerband (the German Armed Forces Association) which is currently u/c.

Great, indeed! This went on totally unnoticed, even in the Berlin forum, I think.

If only most new German official/government buildings of recent years were of that style and dignity...

Are there any construction site pictures anywhere? As far as I know they are building on this projecct, which is part of a large quarter, for years already.

I really like the design. Very elegant, airy and streamlined. Looks like a typical Nöfer design. Love the pavillion on the roof.

Edit:
It is indeed a Nöfer design. Here's the backside by the way:
