A cluster of five towers designed by Graft and Kleihues + Kleihues Architekten will break ground in Berlin in 2015, bringing another mixed-use development to the German capital. Connected by a chain of bridges, the complex will house typically Berlin-like informal workplaces with exteriors that reference the Holzmarkt area’s unique history.
Graft teamed up with Kleihues + Kleihues Architekten to design a proposal of the Holzmarkt area near a railway viaduct that will combine public and private life. The towers will be clad in wood to reference the site’s history, and – if the renders are any indication – will boast a fair amount of green space as well. Flexible organization of the interior will allow for diverse functions and is expected to integrate residential and commercial activities.

Varying in height and connected by publicly accessible bridges, the buildings will provide a range of spatial experiences. The towers, one of several large-scale developments underway in Berlin, are expected to break ground in 2015.
