This Autumn the IBA_Vienna Meets Architects series focuses on the life cycles of architecture and urban space, the subsequent use and extension of premises and on a neighbourhood level.
The Berlin office of Heide & von Beckerath is known for innovative communal housing projects, such as the apartment building for the R50 building collective (with ifau and Jesko Fezer), or the integrative development at the former wholesale flower market in Berlin-Kreuzberg (with ifau). This latter project, in particular, is an extremely successful example of how a district like Südliche Friedrichstadt, dominateded as it is by postwar housing developments, can be densified in a nuanced large-scale form with a mix of uses by providing homes and workplaces.
