A rooftop bar will add additional value to Friedrichstadt-Palast guests. Also, the design of a small tower brings green solar energy to a building while adding elegant cantilevering façade elements.

Next to the entrance of the new building, visitors can enjoy a vertical green wall on the outside, which is simply inviting and gives the entire building an ecological coating.
