Oefelein Architecture 

Built Utopia

To commemorate the Heritage Listing of this unique 1970’s ‘low rise – high density’ project the Director of the Berlin Heritage Council Dr. Christoph Rauhut invited Felix Oefelein for an interview to discuss the thoughts behind the design and how the project has fared over time.  Mr Sascha Amler (Vonovia Property Manager Berlin East / Potsdam), who manages the property joined the discussion towards the end to share some thoughts about what the Highdeck Siedlung needs next.
