Design: Renzo Piano Building Partnership and Christoph Kohlbecker
Building C1 completes an arc of buildings that run along Alte Potsdamerstrasse.
The principal materials for the facades are terracotta tiles and glass.
The facade utilises a double curtain wall operating system, combining of transparent and opaque surfaces. These respond to the external environment but also to the personal needs of the occupants. The natural cooling/heating system reduces primary energy consumption by 50% compared with normally air-conditioned buildings.
Address: Marlene-Dietrich-Platz 3-5, Tiergarten
Location: south end of the Potsdamerplatz group
