Description

The Berlin centre is interesting for visitors from all over the world. Right next to the historic Berlin “Scheunenviertel” quarter a hostel for approx. 360 “backpackers” looking for overnight accommodation at reasonable prices will be built. A generous solution which distinctively underlines the corner has been developed for this narrow and winding plot. The building project will be put into practice in the course of one year.
