Tempelhof Airport, Berlin

Formerly the most modern airport of its time, today a historic landmark and in the future a place of encounter and exchange. A 360° viewing platform has been created high above the former airfield, offering a panoramic view of
Berlin made possible.

The Kebony Clear decking was installed following the successful tender by the Swiss architectural firm :mlzd, while the demanding construction of the ramps, steps and transitions was in the hands of the engineers. Special requirements for wind load, fire protection and pressure load as well as the material mix of planks and panels were developed and solved in close cooperation with the responsible parties.
