Department of Trade and Industry in Berlin, Germany

Restoration of a historic building complex

The aim of the renovation of the Department of Trade and Industry was to restore the former appearance of this historic structure. Special attention was paid here to complying with the requirements for designated historic buildings. In addition, modern workplaces were to be set up in the ministry building. This was done by adding an extension in the shape of the original main section that connected the side wings that are designated historic structures. There is a plinth just in front of the main building that is divided by atriums and pavilions.The building complex bears the signature of architects from various eras. The electrical installation was also modernised and implemented perfectly both technically and visually with the LS 990 classic range of switches from JUNG.
