ABOUT

THE:SQUARE³ is a mixed use development, close to Berlin's centre and Europe’s largest urban nature reserve and the Olympics training centre, by Moritz Gruppe.

THE:SQUARE³ is Life, Nature, Sport:

1. LIFE: A multifunctional urban plan includes all the essentials for a high-quality and healthy urban existence for locals, workers and visitors, successfully answering the demands of a contemporary, quality lifestyle.

2. NATURE: Green characterises three blocks containing apartments, retail space, a kindergarten and social services. Residents will enjoy diagonally shaped spaces, green roof-scapes with cascading balconies, integrated garden courtyards, and overlook playing fields. Hanging plant-filled facades are articulated according to building orientation.

3. SPORT: Rising above a sport ‘podium’ are three towers of varying heights with Olympic themed metallic facades of gold, silver and bronze. Each is tapered to maximise sunlight, views and ventilation. Offices, apartments, a medical and research centre, sports education facilities, a sports hotel and a shopping mall, encircle a green piazza.
