Conversion of the heritage-listed building complex to an urban oasis next to the Zoological Gardens – complete with movie theatre, hotel and shopping malls
Bikini Berlin is a heritage-listed building complex consisting of the Zoo Palast movie theatre, an office high-rise building, a hotel and the Bikinihaus. It provides space for office, leisure and retailing. In the course of the elaborate makeover, substantial conversion and restoration work was carried out. The Bikinihaus itself was completely gutted until only the load-bearing concrete structure remained and then rebuilt with a new framed construction. The sustainable revitalization was rewarded with LEED certification in Gold and several prizes. Special care was given to rebuilding the original façades. Annexes were erected to make greater use of the ensemble’s footprint. New buildings such as the “Bikini Berlin Pool”, a new, two-storey commercial building with an open roof terrace as well as three wide-screen movie theatre rooms, were added. “Parkgarage am Zoo” was completely demolished and replaced by a new building with 223 parking spaces and commercial spaces. Planning and construction works occurred in several phases, which required complex scheduling and logistics planning.
