“The satisfaction of working conceptionally and the aim of making the unusual possible, lead to surprising, memorable and creative solutions with emotional significance.” KSV KRÜGER SCHUBERTH VANDREIKE
KSV Krüger Schuberth Vandreike, founded in 1990, is a Berlin-based agency for architecture, design and communication. Under the management of Torsten Krüger, Christiane Schuberth and Bertram Vandreike the team designs and implements innovative and sustainable solutions covering a wide range of tasks – from the first draft to final completion.
On an interdisciplinary basis the architects, designers and graphics specialists work on projects covering urban planning and architecture, corporate design, exhibition and event design and visual communication.
The discovery of new technologies, materials and forms is always closely linked with scientifically-based access to construction, art and media history, and characterises the team’s work. However, the starting point for each individual concept is always formed by the location and the task.
Lichterfelde Süd (South) is among the biggest housing construction projects of the present day in Berlin. KSV developed the master plan for “Quartier 1” with its approx. 500 residential units under the programmatic title of “Urban Village”. The concept applies modern, urban architecture for a socially mixed, vital and creative residential structure, and forms a bridge between the residential sections to the north and open landscape.
The urban design deliberately sets itself apart from the stereotypical residential districts found on the periphery of big cities. Instead of detached houses the models for the residential units here are the creative lofts of the Lower Eastside in New York and the transformational developments of Shoreditch and Hackney in London, as well as the latest individual townhouse projects created by construction groups in central locations in Berlin.
Not least the name “village” is also a reference to Berlin’s history, because in the post-war decades this area was a military training ground for the U.S. Army. Accordingly history, the present and the future come together here: a typical Berlin project.
