BRIEF New office and administrative building for 50Hertz Transmission GmbH with a total floor area of approximately 25 000 sqm in Berlin city centre.
50HERTZ NETZQUARTIER, BERLIN | GERMANY The new headquarters for the electricity transmission system operator 50Hertz is currently being developed in Berlin’s district Europacity between the railway stations Hamburger Bahnhof and Hauptbahnhof as a cooperative venture by the Graz-based office LOVE architecture and urbanism ZT and kadawittfeldarchitektur. The design of the open and inviting building consists of flexible-use office decks, which are connected by an external structural framework. In reference to 50Hertz, the zig-zag lines of the slanted columns are a reminder of the frequency in alternating current. Due to the varied and flexible furnishing plans, the light office space can be zoned and adapted according to the different requirements of open-plan, hybrid and cellular office structures.
