Although they share the name, the so called malls in Germany are nothing like shopping centers surrounded by massive parking in US and to a lesser extent Canada and Australia. They are multistory buildings with ease pedestrian access. Furthermore, the per capita retail area in Germany is 70% lower than in US.

Volt Berlin | Mitte | Pro


Architects Website


J.MAYER.H und Partner, Architekten has been named the winner of the invited competition for Volt Berlin,
a new concept for a location for shopping and urban experience near Berlin’s Alexanderplatz.
The experience cluster is a fusion concept combining a multi-brand store, various experiential offerings, events, and a hotel,
and is directed towards adventurous visitors with a focus on a smart urban lifestyle.
The large urban building complex is organized according to its various usages in several smaller boxes that are placed in an uneven grid.
One particularly striking aspect of the design is the luminous horizontal glazed line that runs like a tension fissure all the way through the building.
This intermediate space, located at the level of the train viaduct, will host the center’s most important attractions: indoor-skydiving and a surf wave.
This energy line will exude into the urban space around the center,
while Berlin and the immediate area around Alexanderplatz will always be present as a location and a backdrop.

The materials are nice but the displaced windows are awful and ruin it all. In fact, this seems to be the case for many of these projects. It's like the architects are deliberately scrambling their designs to appear progressive, when in fact it's downright degenerate and hideous. If the windows lined up, they could be solid buildings like Schultheiss Quartier, Stralauer Platz 35, ZOOM, East Side Office, and Budapester Höfe. Otherwise, I'd like to see more classic "Berlin Style" or actual innovative architecture like Rauchstraße 32/33 please.

That is true. I love that about Europe. No damned parking lots! LOL

Is another mall necessary in Berlin? Nothing against them, but I think there are plenty already like Alexa and Mall of Berlin.

As long as investors and urban planners see enough room for them, there will be more shopping centres.
After all, Berlin's population and the numbers of tourists have been growing by magnitudes in the course of few years.

Wow, Volt is really a new low. Raw concrete and yellow/orange colered glass,.. but I guess it fits the mindset of this area. Also the success of a shopping center is more than questionable. After all, it is directly behind Alexa and in a not very populated/visited area, I doubt many tourists will visit this one.

I think it is a pretty interesting and unique desing, not as boring and monotone as many other projects. The combination of raw concrete, glass and that illuminated glass fugue looks promising imo.

Furthermore it is not going to be another mall, like the Alexa is. Shopping is a big part of the concept, but not the whole thing. It's more like a center of mixed experiences ... you can shop, dine, spend a night in the hotel or practice some sport, like surfing, climbing or even diving and skydiving. Jochen Schweizer

The start of construction is near.
There is now a non-parking zone until 09/2019 around this site and the first construction workers were seen. The excavators and drilling machines should appear soon.

I really don't like the new version of that tower. The old, slightly twisted one was much better.
