Berlin Central StationBack to Projects list
- Washingtonplatz, 10557 Berlin, Germany
On the site of the historic Lehrter Bahnhof Europe’s largest station was realized: This is where an east-west and a north-south InterCity Express railway line intersect. Large filigree glass roofs with a length of more than 320 meters as well as two bridging office buildings empha-size the existing railway tracks with architectural means. In the central area of the station cross, which rests on a building base, the ceilings of all levels are equipped with large open-ings, allowing daylight to penetrate as far as the underground platform levels.
