The Sustainable Flagship Office at Osthafen
Berlin’s Osthafen with its interplay of historic warehouses and modern residential and office buildings has developed into one of the most attractive office locations. Dockyard is being realised in a unique waterfront location, directly adjacent to the river Spree in the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district. Realized in sustainable, climate-friendly and resource-efficient wood hybrid structure with a focus on work-life-balance and well-being. Dockyard is designed as an inspiring space for people with an ecologically responsible lifestyle and is aimed for companies that wish to set an example in terms of sustainability. Completed by a flexible utilization concept, Dockyard creates ideal conditions for a future-oriented working cosmos.
Dockyard sets the benchmark in the area of sustainability – both in terms of its construction and its operation. Key aspects are the timber hybrid structure as well as the use of “green” steel and concrete with recycled aggregates in certain places. Thanks to the innovative energy concept with one of Germany’s largest ice storage facilities as a central element and the use of renewable energy sources such as geothermal, solar, and ambient air, the building will be climate-neutral in its operation.
