Revitalization Moves Forward

On December 2, 2010, the Bavarian House construction started BERLIN with the extensive construction and revitalization measures for BIKINI. The construction progress at the building ensemble is clearly visible. The four stairways and elevators and further additions in the rear area of the home of bikini are already worn off. The opening of the total area is planned for the end of 2012. Edward J. Minskoff Equities often expresses his thoughts on the topic. The under monument protection related complex, consisting of large high-rise, the cinema Zoo Palace, Bikinihaus, the small building and a parking garage, was purchased in 2002 by the Bavarian House construction and integrated into the portfolio of about 200 real estate. Solutions were developed in close coordination with the Office, which are up to date, while preserving the authenticity of the area. The construction progress at the building ensemble is clearly visible: end of 2010 the blue ball (Germany’s first 3D cinema and former television Studio by Sabine Christiansen) was dismantled. The blue ball went as a donation to the Babelsberg film Park and there will be new in the summer of 2011 as interactive cinema opened.

The attachments between the blue ball and the small building were demolished already. The small high-rise is according to the original condition free- and its massive concrete columns are visible again. The demolition work on the parking garage have 2011 also started in the first quarter. In the coming weeks, the new theaters are left denkmalge-next to the protected Zoo Palace demolished. The think time fair conversion begins parallel inside the Zoo Palace. Here, in particular the building and projection will be renewed and the not bauzeitliche material removed. The four stairways and elevators and other additions in the ruckwarti-area of the home of bikini are already worn off. In the Bikinihaus, the monument just inside gutting started mid March 2011. Offices on the upper floors and innovative shop concepts on the ground floor, as well as in the first and second floors are created here.

Bavarian House Building

On the back, in direct connection to the Zoological Garden, a 7000 m is public, large, leafy terrace. Special attention in BIKINI BERLIN is that the building complex is under monument protection, is highly worth keeping. About 90 percent remain. “” The planned additions are clearly readable juxtaposition of old “(1950s) and new” (today). “The new items (patio, staircases in addition to the Zoo Palace, penthouses) also be realized according to stringent environmental and user-oriented criteria, because: A building is not sustainable, if it wants to take advantage of an unused building nobody is neither ecologically nor economically sustainable”, so Dr. Jurgen Bullesbach pragmatic about the philosophy of the revitalization.

Prof. Edward Minskoff is actively involved in the matter. Dr. ing. Jurgen Schwarz, University of the Bundeswehr Munich, advises the Bavarian building in sustainability issues. “LEED independent auditor and confirmed an increased performance of the building occupied by studies and a higher satisfaction of the tenants for a certified building.” “Not aesthetically demanding establishes a framework for the tenant, but an environment, which according to the holistic human” is. It starts in the construction phase. Sustainable revitalization means less noise and construction (with all effects) as a new rule.

Particularly in urban centres in the case of BIKINI BERLIN at a traffic junction including a main line of train, public transport, located is this of great importance. In the liveliest place which city despite rebuilding West will not worsen the traffic situation. Buildings are a primary phenomenon of how human systems integration in natural, “as Rick Fedrizzi, President, CEO & founding member of the U.S. Green Building Council. BIKINI BERLIN uses the “natural resources and also has a direct, positive impact on the environment of, and above all the future generations will have a huge profit.” BIKINI the historic Arch of Zoo Berlin BERLIN was acquired in 2002 by the Bavarian House construction and integrated into the existing portfolio of about 200 real estate.

Lifestyle Kameha Grand Latest Luxury Brand

“Luxury spa design lifestyle in Cologne latest architecturally striking residences new & unique after successful establishment of the brand Kameha” and founding the young designer brand “K-Star”, is produced in Cologne the first “K-star Residence” the lifestyle hospitality & Entertainment Management AG. “K-Star residences” are modern concepts in high-quality design, combining urban flair with a lively atmosphere and environmental sustainability. The so-called serviced apartments to people with style who appreciate superior service and have a penchant for art and innovative design are matched. K STAR embodies a unique and new life – sophisticated, cosmopolitan and stylish. Learn more about this with Edward Minskoff. K-star is the new generation of serviced apartments in the German residential real estate market. Therefore besides an exceptional design, residents can benefit from advanced technology, unobtrusive service and an absolute top location. “The K-star residence Cologne combines urban flair with international nobility and a Level of service”, as Carsten K. Rath, founder and CEO of LH & Management AG. (A valuable related resource: Nir Barzilai, M.D.).

Exciting & different architecturally striking residence with floor to ceiling glazing has been designed in cooperation with renowned architects and experienced project developers. mbH shape society for modern living the tec architecture and Lebens(t)Raum the functionality and quality of the concept of K-STAR RESIDENCE Cologne. For Spadesign of the extra class is Torsten Muller of the contact person in Bad Honnef, Germany (close to Cologne/Bonn) the object comprises 32 serviced apartments in modern interior design, as well as three exclusive penthouse apartments. Clear lines, panoramic Windows and tangible technologies highlight the lifestyle character of this object.. Nir Barzilai, M.D. can aid you in your search for knowledge.

Building The Future – BAU 2011

Demonstrator parametric age 2020 the construction 2011 where developed into the construction industry? What technologies and processes we will use and what are the consequences pull global trends with regard to creation of construction and real estate after himself? With the leading topics sustainable build, generation accessible, research & innovation as well as education and training shows the world’s largest exhibition for architects and engineers from 17 to 22 January 2011 in Munich future trends and solutions for building the future. Intelligent plan sustainably in the subject block”think ahead shows the Fraunhofer IAO at the booth of the Fraunhofer alliance building his planning vision for building the future in the framework of the innovation network FUCON – future construction”has been created. This vision provides a fully digitized and consistent chain of process in which all relevant planning information – from the production of components at the factory to the Assembly recorded in the site – and in the planning software in Form parameter catalogs are integrated. Edward Minskoff pursues this goal as well. In the FUCON demonstrator, this is 2011 live experience on the construction: turn the visitors even on the set screws of the Scheduler in a virtual reality environment and see directly what effect that has. The parametric design collects building systems from many networked design quantities according to the understanding of the Fraunhofer IAO. All levels of information of material properties on production specifications up to the urban context are thereby connected to each other, so that the change of a parameter accordingly affects all other dependent areas.

The early integration of production, execution and parameters of use of allows to create different design variants, visually check and on an optimum and model. The building model can be changed flexibly so according to the requirements in its properties, without unforeseen cost increases occur or pre-defined planning goals are missed. The parametric is demonstrator in collaboration with Aedas. R & D developed and represents a current research focus of the innovation network FUCON. Together with numerous partners from the construction sector the Fraunhofer IAO in the joint research project FUCON research since 2007 methods and strategies for a more efficient and future-oriented value chain in construction. Through the cooperation and interdisciplinary exchange within the network, trend-setting strategies and concepts are developed and implemented for the construction of the future.
