Do it Together at Spreeacker


Bau- und Wohngenossenschaft Spreefeld Wilhelmine-Gemberg-Weg 10 10179 Berlin

Spreeacker e.V, Spreefeld Genossenschaft, TeePee Land

German, English

Spreefeld can be described using terms you don’t often hear in the same sentence: quality, affordable, housing in Berlin. A cooperative undertaking managed by a group called die Zusammenarbeiter, architects BARarchietcts, fatkoehl, and Silvia Carpanteo have established an innovative development on the much-speculated-over banks of the Spree. Embodying the DIY spirit of Baugruppen that were active in Kreuzberg during the 1980s, the three buildings comprise communal facilities that can be used and voted upon by the residents themselves. The 44 apartments themselves vary in size – from 54m2 right up to 705m2 for a group – but all are take the notion of shared living as the starting point for their design.


Spreeacker is part of the Spree Shore Path at the Spreefeld Cooperative, a project where residents not only live together but also decide together how the development might be enhanced with additional communal spaces. Join in and ‘do it together’ for this event concerned with one of those very spaces and which will see reclaimed wood turned into benches, tables and other elements of this new garden area on the banks of the Spree.
