Besides Simplon, Simplus is one of eight realized buildings within the first cooperative development of a Berlin Block, a critical size to produce a range of uses necessary for an affordable city of maximal variety. Besides a range of different typologies for living we also produce working unites, a kinder-garden and extend the shared space of the courtyard onto several roof-tops. The opening of the Block with our building creates apartments with more intimacy, more light and extend the public realm into the courtyard.
