Pillbox | GSW Headquarters in Berlin

June 9, 2013

Adjoining the 22-storey highrise of the GSW Headquarters is the green “pillbox”. From what I gather from the monikers assigned to these buildings, the “pillbox” sits on top of the “baguette”, which I assume is the low-rise dark grey structure underneath. I was so busy snapping the red-pink high-rise and the pillbox that I didn’t notice the original 17-storey building from the 1950s around which the newer additions were designed; you can see it leaning in from the left in the second photo. In any event, the new project has won awards for energy efficiency (and smart use of glass), which you can read about here and here.
