Residential and commercial building, Wisbyer Straße

The residential and commercial building in the Prenzlauer Berg district of Berlin was built as a steel concrete structure with one lower floor and six upper floors on a foundation slab. The building land is located at a junction with dense car and tram traffic. The high demands of office and residential use permitted only low vibration and secondary airborne noise emissions.
