Studio Sozia has designed TINA, a flexible office and residential building in Breisach, Germany.
"Due to low land reserves and the associated sharp rise in land prices in the greater Freiburg area, our client acquired a commercial property that was almost 85% cheaper than the desired multi-family property," said Studio Sozia.
As a response to this ambivalence, which is not unusual nationally, the architects developed the idea of designing an office building that could be converted into a variable number of apartments.
In addition, the project had just a few interventions on the expansion level – in case the land use plan needs to be adjusted in the future.
