A smart building for the digital age

It’s the year 2022. Technology is a vast, quiet element forming the seamless backbone of everyday life. The internet is a background utility, only noticeable when absent. The recent completion of THE TERRACE marked the leap into a new generation of work edifices along the banks of the Spree River.

Located at the BERLIN RIVIERA, an 8,500 m² ANH plot of land by the river Spree in Charlottenburg, THE TERRACE consists of seven upper floors with a gastronomic use on the ground floor. The design of the building is characterised by generously projecting balcony and terrace areas whose parapets and soffits are clad with galvanised steel. The fully glazed facades are equipped with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors facing the water and the central open green space.

    On Friday 30th October 2020, The Terrace celebrated a quite different version of a roofing ceremony. After 11 months the first construction stage has been completed. Seven floors are now based on a total of 245 round supports. Due to COVID-19 there was no official celebration. Instead ANH invited the construction workers and the planning and project teams to have free food and drinks at Schmucks’ BBQ & Soulfood Food Truck at the site.

    The second construction phase now started with interior constructions and the external cladding involving no less than 2,700m² glass and 1 km of railings.

    The construction site of BERLIN RIVIERA will be the backdrop for a dance performance by the collective Young Boy Dancing Group. Despite Berlin’s urgent need for housing, the city only granted a permit for new office buildings instead of allowing to convert the former industrial zone into a residential area.

    Young Boy Dancing Group formed as a collective out of a Martha Graham summer workshop and has been working internationally with a changing cast since 2014. Their partly improvised, partly modularly structured performances sound out social conventions and heteronormative ideas of sexuality.
