Axel-Springer new building

The official start of construction for the new Axel-Springer building in Berlin was on October 6, 2016 - exactly 50 years after the opening of the golden publishing tower. A new, impressive Axel Springer SE publishing building for up to 3,500 employees was built on the 10,000 square meter site between Schützen, Zimmer and Jerusalemer Straße.

The Axel Springer family in Berlin is moving closer with the new building. This enables closer networking and a better exchange of knowledge. The extraordinary architecture not only represents the future of work, it is also a symbol of Axel Springer's digital transformation.

The design for the modern office building comes from the renowned Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas (Office for Metropolitan Architecture = OMA), who prevailed in a previous planning competition against 17 architectural firms and was edited by Ed. Züblin AG, a company of the STRABAG-group.

The light-flooded building in the shape of a cube is being built in the immediate vicinity of the two high-rise buildings and the Axel Springer Passage. The interior of the building will be characterized by interconnected terraces and a 45 meter high atrium. Tinted glass surfaces and components in 3D look will form the facade.
