A unique industrial memorial

Control Room

The historical transformer building forms the heart of the ewerk. During the building’s industrial past, this was the site of the control room for the mechanical systems.

With its glass ceiling, its original transformer panels from 1926 and original maintenance walkway located behind rustic control cabinets, the transformer building is guaranteed to impress.

The contrast between the nearly hundred-year-old technology and the modern architecture of the 21st century gives the space its unique ambience and takes visitors back in time to the days when electrical production was reaching its first zenith.

One level below the Control Room you will find the Substations I and II, two equally sized conference rooms whose layouts mirror each other. Both offer views of Potsdamer Platz and the Federal Finance Ministry.

The foyer with floor-level glass façade attached to steel beams provides the perfect backdrop to welcome your guests. The ventilation shaft that previously served to cool the machines in the basement now functions as an elevator for the entire Transformer House.

Event Scenarios

Looking for a unique and impressive location for your next presentation or meeting? Then look no further! The ewerk is ideal for film and photo shoots as well as for workshops that require a creative setting. The foyer can easily be transformed into an accreditation area and cloakroom for large events.
