Dragoner Barracks – Berlin

The urban design for the former Dragoner Barracks in Berlin Kreuzberg and adjoining areas works out the historical difference between the former barracks and the Wilhelminian-style block edge development and at the same time creates a new expressive urban quarter. The concept offers spacious, open spaces that invite to meet and network well with the neighbourhood. The listed buildings are adequately respected.

The urban design was developed  in an open workshop process with citizen participation. In this model project, the cooperation partners  actively support the implementation. The district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg will draw up the development plan based on the selected urban design.
