Berlin forms the transient backdrop for raumwandler architects, who specialise in breathing new life into cherished structures. raumwandler are a compact team of ten co-workers from six different countries, including architects, engineers and one art historian around architect and founder Uwe Licht. Based in the transient, everevolving cityscape of Berlin, raumwandler (the term translates as ‘space transformers’) have chosen the reconstruction of historical monuments, their conversion and reutilisation as their special field of expertise. As founder Uwe Licht states: “For me, the reconstruction of listed buildings means working with both a piece of culture and a chapter of social history.”
