The task: new rooms for a law firm in a historic industrial building. The location: the law firm JBB rented a floor in Pfefferberg’s historic brewery site. The Pfefferberg, originally the brewery by the Bavarian brewmaster Joseph Pfeffer, is an area full of history: during the GDR era, it was here that the SED newspaper “New Germany” was printed. Since around 2001, a mixed district with studios, galleries, private museums and gastronomy has developed here. Neighbours include Olafur Eliasson and Sergei Tchoban’s Museum for Architectural Drawing. In 2006, we built the office in an elongated, circa 500-square-metre, gutted floor of the former brewery. The iron columns, which feature capitals, and the 19th-century beams are the only visible historic remnants in the space.
