redevelopment of the high-rise platz der luftbrücke

The high-rise apartment building, completed by the architects Prof. Sobotka+Müller in 1964, was noticeably neglected at the end of 2015 and polluted by an asbestos panel curtain wall. The building itself is not a listed building, but is located in the immediate vicinity of the listed buildings of Tempelhof Airport and Max Taut's "House of Book Printers". w:a were able to implement a reorganization of the facades in close cooperation with the preservation of monuments, which is based on the restrained, construction-time color scheme, but still sets contemporary accents with the summarizing parapet bands. In the course of the facade renovation of the 38 n the high-rise building, the pollutants were disposed of under strict occupational health and safety conditions and all facades were completely rebuilt using minerals and adapted to current energy requirements. At the same time, the existing oil heating system was completely dismantled and replaced with a modern gas condensing boiler. The work was carried out in the inhabited state in an extremely short construction period of only 7 months between scaffolding and equipment.
