Aweso Scalo mono/duo case study
Reconstruction of the historic corner towers for the courthouse in Littenstrasse, Berlin (DE)
The building was constructed in two phases between 1896-1905 between Neuer Friedrich- and Grunerstrasse and was one of the largest buildings in Berlin when completed. During the World War II, the courthouse was heavily damaged by bombing raids. Although restoration took place after 1945, it was in a simplified form. Among other things, the corner towers, which had been destroyed, were not rebuilt.
After the reunification of Berlin in 1990, the building was seat of various chambers of the Landgericht (district court), where appeals, trade and traffic accident cases are heard. In 2009, after completing further restoration work, the two corner towers were also restored.
