Two storey roof extension

RBA were asked by the Irish property owner to examine the property with a view to identifying an exit strategy. The four storey building is located directly adjacent to a raised inner city section of motorway. The neighbouring buildings are significantly higher. RBA proposed adding two stories of additional ca. 400m² residential accommodation in the form of “studio-apartments”, intended for use by students or for medium-term lets, with the additional possibility of split-and-sale to individual investors. RBA was contracted to split the property (condominium ownership) and to achieve building permission.

Roof conversion

into 6 apartments, addition of external lifts and balconies, redesign of facades

RBA were appointed as general planner for planning, permission and realisation of a conversion project in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg. The residential turn of the century building includes a front house with side wing and a rear building. The existing roof construction is to be replaced by a new construction including on-top roof terraces, cut in terraces and dormers for 6 new, generously appointed apartments. Additional lifts and balconies are another plus factor of these modernisation measures. After regulatory considerations and planning RBA have submitted the planning application, to be followed by detailed planning, tender process and the site supervision to completion. As general planner RBA provide MEP, structural engineering, health & safety supervision and in this case also project management services.
