Pachyderm house reconstruction

As reported, we have been enthusiastically involved in the conversion of the pachyderm house at Tierpark Berlin since 2018, the redesign of which was carried out in close cooperation with the director and the caretakers of the zoo.

The construction of the pachyderm house at Tierpark Berlin was officially announced in February. As the centrepiece of a future African landscape, the existing pachyderm house is to be fundamentally rebuilt. According to the motto “More space for animals, less space for visitors”, the area in the house for the animals alone is to increase almost tenfold. In the course of the conversion, all elephants will initially leave Tierpark Berlin in the first half of 2020 and move to other zoos.

The conversion is expected to cost about 35.4 million euros and will take about two years. IGP continues to accompany the project on the TGA side with great pleasure during the conversion and renovation of the building.

Further information and pictures of the project can be found on the zoo’s website:

A kingdom for elephants

Charité Berlin

At the Campus Virchow Klinikum (CVK) in Berlin, infrastructural access and supply facilities are to be modernised, which are indispensable for the development of a university heart centre (UHZB). These construction measures are to be carried out on the south-western part of the CVK and comprise the connection of the UHZB buildings and the replacement of the special isolation ward or a comparable construction volume. The IGP has been awarded the contract for project management in this respect and is looking forward to further cooperation with the Charité Berlin.

Pachyderm House Berlin

The Pachyderm House in Berlin’s Tierpark is a crowd-puller for young and old. We are therefore delighted that we have been involved in the conversion and renovation of the building and the TGA since 2018. The aim of the measure is to create more “habitat/holding space” for the animals. In the interior, a free-wheeling hall with natural flooring will be built, which is adapted to the natural habitat of the animals. In addition, artificial rock walls will be created in order to increase the close-to-nature experience for visitors.

The project is currently nearing completion of design planning (LP3) and submission of construction planning documents.
Thanks to the great cooperation in the planning team, we were also able to clarify very specific questions professionally and with how much pleasure with the director and keepers of the zoo.

We are all very much looking forward to the result of the project. After the finished conversion, the Pachyderm House is the largest elephant house in Europe.

Castle Mickeln

A university, a castle and us – what sounds like good ingredients for a novel is in reality the nice start of a new IGP project:

The Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf has commissioned IGP as general planner for Mickeln Castle in Düsseldorf’s Himmelgeist district.

The university has been using the castle, built in 1840, as a conference centre for several years now. Now it is to be converted into a guest house, which from a building law point of view is a place of accommodation.

More details about the castle can be found on the “Schloss Mickeln” page of the university.

ICC Berlin

Together with our Hamburg colleagues – the SAA Schweger Architekten – we developed a new utilisation concept for the International Congress Centre and submitted it on time as part of the expression of interest procedure.

The procedure relates to the renovation, conversion and further use of the ICC at Berlin’s Westkreuz, directly opposite the Radio Tower. The ICC is Europe’s largest congress centre – but has been closed since 2014. The Konkresszentrum has therefore been the subject of repeated discussion for a long time – but no solution has yet been found. With our design we show an invigorating perspective for the future!

13 investors have submitted ideas in total. Economics Senator Ramona Pop expects a total of one to two years until the result is determined, which concept is most convincing.

RBB reports on this:

Potential realization

The former Telefunken site in Hanover still offers enormous potential, which is now to be fully developed. We are therefore very pleased to have been awarded the contract for the further development of the site and the renewed cooperation with our cooperation partner and builder Koch + Partner GmbH.

HafenCity Run Hamburg

Now it’s getting sporty. Together with the SAA Schweger Architects we will participate as IGP Family at the 18th HafenCity Rund in Hamburg. The event will take place on 22 June and is not only Northern Germany’s largest company run, but is also a good deed in many ways:

  • for one’s own health
  • for “good mood effects”
  • for the health of all those who run along – also in preparation for the actual run
  • for the association “Children help children”
  • and of course above all for the children who benefit from it via the association

Here you will find all the details about the HafenCity Run 2019.

Full e-power! – Charité Berlin
