The new residential and commercial building in Berlin-Charlottenburg, planned as a timber hybrid, is clad with recycled beaver tails. The beaver tails are dismantled from a demolished building and given a second life on site as a façade. The building volume of the rear building will be supplemented by prefabricated balconies. These are intended to be reminiscent of staggered city silhouettes and are encased in expanded metal cladding. This simultaneously provides privacy and serves as weather protection for the outdoor seating.

Behind the building shell is a solid timber construction made of cross-laminated timber elements with a stair core made of exposed concrete. The wooden surfaces of the ceilings remain unsealed to ensure a pleasant indoor climate. The floor plans are generously proportioned and each extends over one storey. The floor plans develop around a central east-west oriented living area.
