Potsdamer Platz, Cinemaxx and residences – 8/17

The cinema Cinemaxx is harmoniously inserted in the suburb thanks to its covering in yellow terracotta. It has 19 rooms on 5 different levels, for a total of 3500 spectators, so a really big cinema in Berlin.

Next to it, a triangle-shaped lot is occupied by a building developed around a central courtyard, covered by a red terracotta. The both levels under the roof are set back from the facade.

The complex was designed in 1993 by Lauber&Woehr Architects, and the construction ended in 1998. These architects also designed, always on the Daimler-Chrysler lot, the building called “Grimm Haus”, situated between Eichornstrasse and Linkstrasse. Like the others, it is covered with elements in red terracotta and is composed by residences, commercial parts and a nursery.
