Ludwig Erhard Haus was designed to house the Berlin Stock Exchange, the Chamber of Commerce and the local Federation of Industrialists. The brief also called for lettable office space, a conference centre and catering facilities and the client stipulated that the entire project be self-financing. Grimshaw’s scheme had to be commercially viable, built within a tightly controlled budget, but capable of commanding high rental rates.

A further condition was to achieve low energy consumption, low running costs and low levels of pollutant emissions. Taking into account additional restrictions, such as rights-of-light issues, the irregularity of the site and the maximum building height line imposed by the city planners, the volume of the building represents the site’s maximum commercial development envelope.
