The "Living and Working" project was implemented along the banks of the Spree in the area of the former GDR Combine Electro Equipment Works Berlin-Treptow. As a part of a new service sector area, the project covers the twin towers near the Spree and two U-shaped blocks to the south of these towers. The 18-storied twin towers have an edge-to-edge length of 16 x 18 meters and are connected through a 3-storied base structure; the total length along the Spree is 54 meters. Shops are located on the ground floor and offices occupy the upper floors and towers. Both 6-storied blocks have an edge-to-edge length of 54 x 50 meters. The green inner courtyard boasts some of the highest quality offices. (Information from This image was taken in 2001 by John P. Schooley, FAIA, during the 'Berlin: Building the New City' tour.
