In 2010 excavation of known archaeological remnants of the first, medieval town hall of Berlin started. This triggered a political movement to retain as much of the findings as possible. The original policy to excavate, record and remove the remains was abandoned. We were asked to develop a revised design to take account of this.As a result a very compact station was designed. Large openings bringing daylight to the platforms could not be realised anymore. The new design identity of the station was created by a strong spatial concept and an expressive structure using "mushroom columns" and the treatment of the walls. All wall surfaces are clad in sanded concrete panels. The design communicates the movement and dynamics associated with inner city rail travel.
