Max is a project for a central business district in Berlin-Wedding. The context consists of old factories (landmarks) and housing blocks from the last 50 years, typical for West-Berlin. 

The goal is to create a dense urban block, while allowing the courtyard of the hotel part (corner) to give space to an urban gallery with outdoor circulation, facing a typical Berlin firewall. The whole block allows a public access to the ground floor and to the courtyard. 

The front facade is developed in a modular system, allowing optimized construction process, while unfolding vivid balcony and loggia conditions in response to the adjacent housing district with the "Gartenplatz" in front.
