Now, that's an eye catcher!

Date: 16 December 2015
A high-rise building in the middle of Berlin. Great location, but totally run down. Now revived once again as a 4-star hotel.

With one oft the most spectacular panoramic views of Berlin.  And do you know where the necessary windows for this come from? - Exactly. From FLACHGLAS Wernberg, of course.

Initially an administrative building for the electronics giant Philips, then in the hands of Deutsche Bahn and finally only a case for renovation - the high-rise at Martin-Luther-Straße in Berlin, was at an end. After 40 years, something had to happen urgently. The building is located close to Ku'damm and almost directly opposite the KaDeWe department store. For the Spanish Hotelier RIU, this "prime location" was enough reason to acquire and clean out the tower over several years of conversion and renovation, turning it into an elegant 4-star hotel.

The face oft the new Plaza Berlin actually originates entirely from Upper Franconia. The facade had to satisfy the most demanding sound and thermal insulation requirements. It was also supposed to look beautiful, of course. Classy, low key. Black and white. High transparency with some striking, colourful highlights, that shine from the inside out.

The architects from the internationally renowned office of GFB Alvarez & Sagar, completely encased the tower and complemented it with a glass cube for the congress area. Facade panels, insulation glazing and digitally printed glass - all developed, produced and delivered by FLACHGLAS Wernberg. By the end, the total volume amounted to 9000 m²  of DELOGCOLOR black and white facade panels, 1200 m² digitally printed SIGLADUR/DELODUR black/white and 3000 m² of solar control insulation glass.

Complaints? None. Instead, 4-star satisfaction. We want to wish all new guests a magnificent view over Berlin.
