The existing condition of Berlin Grand Central is quite remote from the rest of urban fabric; front and backsides are cut by large boulevards with large empty lots around. The office tower competition is initiated to resolve this lack of pedestrian use for the main station of Berlin. The ground floor of the office is composed as an open plan, providing visibility through the entire floor with programmatic enclaves. Upper levels provide a wide range of office types from cellular, combination, team, open, and other creative mixed use plans.
