GRAFT won a competition for a feasibility study to develop a concept for converting the existing Terminal D at Berlin Tegel Airport into a start-up hub for tech companies.
Together with the planned university in Terminal A, the building’s intended function is to serve as a nucleus for the development of the entire Urban Tech Republic site. The high standard of design in the initial phase at Terminal D is intended to act as both a focal point and a stimulus for future phases of the Urban Tech Republic project.
GRAFT’s design features flexible co-working areas, group work and conference rooms, communication zones, office spaces and a nursery for up to 50 children. The multistory car park will be transformed into another kind of nursery, in which trees and bushes will grow into a young forest and later populate the new TXChange urban development.
