The Lanolin factory in Berlin-Charlottenburg is a place shaped by tradition. Already used as a factory site from 1865, the ensemble of buildings has always stood for progress and evolution. The new office buildings recently completed on the site also continue this future-oriented use and blend harmoniously with the listed existing buildings. The office Collignon Architektur from Berlin has developed a successful approach to integrating flexible loft house structures alongside classic factory architecture into a contemporary building ensemble. The dynamic is also reflected in the central location of the Lanolin factory on the Landwehr Canal with short distances to gyms, schools, daycare centers, supermarkets and gastronomic facilities. The lighting concept supports the necessary flexibility and individuality required in contemporary working environments, while simultaneously finding a careful approach to the listed building.
