Here comes Siemensstadt² - Berlin’s city district of the future
Our project area Siemensstadt² is located in the Berlin district of Spandau, northwest of Berlin's city center. Siemensstadt is an official district of Spandau and one of the oldest and most famous industrial sites in Germany. The new concept covers around 73 hectares within this district, equivalent to about 100 soccer fields. The road Nonnendammallee provides a large artery for traffic through the area. The current buildings in the area focus almost exclusively on administration and industrial production.
This will change with Siemensstadt²: The trailblazing 'district within a district' will be both sustainable and energy-efficient. Instead of long streets with cross-streets, open spaces of various sizes will be created. The goal is to open the neighbourhood whilst maintaining the tradition and history of the area, and to maintain the philosophy established when Siemensstadt was founded over 100 years ago: To unite life and culture with a local on-site working environment.
