Berlin’s new connotation with “Bauhaus”

Thinking of Bauhaus Berlin is automatically associated with Gropius. Now, Berlin has another association: The new building of the Bauhaus AG by Müller Reimann Architects. The new building is a warehouse construction with an extravagant façade and has the prominent address Kurfürstendamm 129a.

The three-dimensional façade cladding made of parametric ALUCOBOND® tray panels spans across the whole structure with a floor space of 22 000 m². It reflects the light and changes its colour through different light incidences according to weather and daytime. “The effect of the façade is generated with the combination and overlay of different elements: reflecting surfaces, advertising lines, winter garden and plants”, so the architects.

The “City Garden”, a winter garden in front of the sales area promotes the building centre like an oversized showcase. The long windows are used as huge advertising media and draw the attention to the deepness of the former railway lane. A drive-in area facilitates the purchase.


Eight out of ten Porsche buyers are men over fifty. The car manufacturer has developed the “Destination Porsche” brand concept, including corporate architecture, to counteract this state of affairs.

BCF Arena

Once upon a time, it is said that there was a bloodthirsty dragon who lived in a cavern in the gloomy Gottéron Gorge and who could only be vanquished with God’s help. Today the dragon’s only role is in a medieval legend, but it reminds us how dangerous this rugged landscape can be in snow, ice and floods.

Green Line House

Houses in Masuria, like the families living in them, share the same tactic: they keep a low profile when chilly winds blow in across the flat landscape from the Baltic Sea. This is why this house sits low in the landscape, nestles up against hillocks and tucks itself in under grassy covers.
