Marek Wojciechowski Architects were appointed by the European Property Investment and Asset Management company, Avingon Capital, to design the master plan for Ampere in Berlin's thriving 'tech' quarter. The former power station comprises a collection of Listed buildings culminating in the dramatic central ‘rotunda’ the former control tower which retains its historic electrical equipment.
The campus has developed in a piecemeal fashion and required a complete overhaul to reposition this underutilised heritage asset in line with Avignon’s ambitious plans. MWA’s proposal looks to improve wayfinding around the campus by formalising the entrance to the site, whilst improving the street presence of the building and increasing footfall through the site.
The inclusion of a new mezzanine in a 100m hall and refurbishment of an existing basement has created a campus with over 200,000 square feet of retail, leisure and office accommodation.
