Port Faraday (Focus Teleport)

Port Faraday (Focus Teleport)

Working next to the River Spree
In former times, this was where the milling company Kampffmeyer produced flour for Germany.¹ Nowadays, it is a workplace for thousands of employees. The nine partially connected buildings between Spree, Alt-Moabit, and Strom­straße were constructed between 1987 and 2000. The former admin­is­tration building of Kampffmeyer-Mühlen and the winding tower dating back to 1939 were integrated in the complex. Both are listed buildings. The current tenants include various insti­tu­tions and companies, among them leading technology and media companies,² such as AVM, the devel­opers of FRITZ!box, as well as the Inter­na­tional Psycho­an­a­lytic University.
In 1985, Hans Karl Herr and the company ITAG commis­sioned the archi­tects Joachim Ganz and Walter Rolfes to turn the indus­trial ruins of Kampffmeyer-Mühlen and the porcelain factory Schomberg into a complex of “intel­ligent” buildings. The buildings are reinforced concrete construc­tions. The mullion-transom façade features windows that extend down to the floor in some cases; the façade itself is clad with terra­cotta panels. The complex reflects a consistent focus on modernism. The proximity of the river­banks and the excellent transport connec­tions further enhance the attrac­tiveness of this location. Port Faraday (Focus Teleport) was acquired as a joint venture with Allianz.
