Working on a Large Scale

In the epicenter of western Berlin, near the bustling Kurfürstendamm, stands an architectural icon of the 1920s – the Lenzhaus.  As Berlin’s first office skyscraper, it’s emphatic, vertically structured limestone façade, stands as a symbol of the impressive and commanding architecture of the Art Deco era. BFA has taken the grandeur of the outside, and successfully restored the inner grandeur as well. Small, narrow interiors have been transformed into spacious, bright, open spaces. The central atrium has been redesigned, allowing light to majestically pour into various rooms. In addition, historical elements, such as support beams and stucco ceilings have been uncovered, emphasizing the avant-garde character of this magnificent building.
