Contemporary architecture on the banks of the Spree: the Hotel nhow Berlin in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.
Until the 1990s, this was the site of Berlin’s Osthafen, where coal tugboats and cargo ships brought their cargo ashore.
Since then, the character of the area has changed considerably – the former Osthafen is now a hotspot of Berlin’s creative scene and a sought-after location for fashion and media companies (buzzword: Mediaspree).
Numerous new buildings have sprung up between the historic warehouse buildings, such as the nhow Berlin Hotel, which opened in 2010.
The building is a design by Tchoban Voss Architekten.
Characteristic and striking is the silver-colored cube, which seems to float weightlessly above the banks of the Spree.
The nhow Berlin offers, among other things, a fully equipped recording studio, which is why it is also called “Europe’s first music hotel”.
