Prenzlauerberg Apartment Building
Light, Air, and Sun
Zionskirchstraße is a proposal for the development of a six-story apartment building in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood of Berlin. Designed as an urban infill project to replace a structure destroyed in World War II, the project involved an intensive amount of research on the historical planning of the city as well as its contemporary zoning process, along with lighting studies that were presented to the Stadtentwicklungsamt Berlin, Pankow (City Planning Department of Berlin-Pankow) and the Bauamt Berlin, Pankow (Building Department of Berlin-Pankow).
Prenzlauer Berg, a portion of the Pankow district in northeast Berlin, was originally developed from a master plan designed by James Hobrecht in 1862.
