Competition entry for Berlin’s Museum of 20th Century Art to be located in the Kulturforum district. The project proposes a series of pavilions, public spaces and gardens connected and unified by a greenhouse structure. Serving both a symbolic and functional purpose, our project conceives this public building as a space that one could see through and into, creating a new kind of public space where 20th Century Art’s fascination with the abstract is met with the elements of nature and the figures of the city.

Reinventing a space, demolishing the old and to approach the clients needs and wishes nowadays always requires a innovative idea.
A box can contain what you place in it, but most importantly can become what you brew of it. From this basic rethinking of the interior shell the Brew Box pad design scheme emerged.

Taking his trident in both hands, Poseidon stirs the sea into a fury and lashes up rain and squall.
Mast and sail are torn away, Odysseus is thrown overboard and buried under a wall of water.
When he emerges gasping and sputtering, he somehow manages to clamber back aboard.
A goddess, Leucothea, appears to him in the form of a bird.
She counsels him to swim for it.
“Take my veil, tie it around your waist as a charm against drowning.
When you reach shore, be sure to throw it back into the sea.”

A large Berlin block of flats in Bötzow district, built in 1905, with a representative front building, side wing and rear wing was extensively refurbished in a partially inhabited state.
The originally rich stucco facade of the front building had mostly dropped off and the remaining elements were irredeemably dilapidated.

A new memorial for Martin Luther will be constructed in central Berlin at the former Neuer Markt next to the St.Marienkirche. The winning proposal of the international competition ‘Luther-Denkmal 2017’ refers in its spatial arrangement to the historical Luther memorial that was destroyed during WWII. Like a mirror image of the original memorial, a negative volume is embossed into the ground. It points to Berlin’s history and emphasises the importance of public space for the society. Looking closely at the steps and the edge detailing, the original shapes of the former memorial become visible as negative imprints. However, the new memorial is not at all a reconstruction of the old one, but presents itself as a contemporary and sculpturally composed memorial in its own right.

GRAFT designed a single-family house and two semi-detached houses, all of them environment-friendly buildings that join mobility, energy and health. The project is an unrivaled holistic approach that connects modern architecture, innovative building equipment and e-mobility as well as sustainability and physical health. The houses even generate a surplus of energy that will be used to charge an e-car that the tenant rents with the house.

Small and cautious interventions try not to destroy the special atmosphere and to retrieve hidden qualities in the refurbishment of a typical Berlin apartment from around 1900.
In three rooms several layers of old color were taken off the extensive moulding on the ceiling. Behind the thick layers of color parts of the original ceiling frescos appeared. Since the ceilings were not painted again, the rooms are being characterized by a lively and diverse feeling full of history. The slight irregularities of a rough lime cement plaster on the walls are equally far away from a too monotonous perfectly smooth surface. The old hardwood flooring was sanded off and treated with a mixture of oil and wax.
