Vocational School, OSZ Energietechnik, Berlin-Lichtenberg, Germany

This project, a new building on an existing campus, houses classrooms, workshops and a large common space for a vocational high school in the former East Berlin.  The partially underground lower level is covered with a 400 sq. meter green roof system which acts as a visual bridge between the existing campus on one side of the building to the public park adjacent to the campus on the other side.  The green roof technology also provides the building with substantial energy savings through vastly increased insulation values.

Architect:  Architekten BHHS + Partner, Berlin

Richard Goodstein, nC2 Principal, was a staff architect at Architekten BHHS on this project.
