Alexanderplatz, Hackescher Höfe, Unter den Linden, Friedrichstrasse and Potsdamer Platz with their museums, restaurants, opera houses, cinemas and shops are only a maximum of two kilometres as the crow flies from the historical Luisenstadt, in the western part of which is situated the AQUA Carré. The AQUA CARRÉ in the Lobeckstraße is situated in a superb central and very quiet location at Moritzplatz in the Kreuzberg district, bordering the Mitte district. The City-Ost, the eastern part of the city, can be reached in about ten minutes. The underground stations Moritzplatz (underground line U8) and Prinzenstraße are both within walking distance.
Originally built as an armature and metal goods factory at the end of the 19th century, the Aqua Butzke-Werke AG (production of sanitary fittings), as it was known since the mid-1970s, has lent its name to the location as we know it today – the “AQUA Carré”. The architect and government architect Georg Lewy fitted the facades out with multicolored bricks, pillars and round arches and decorated it lavishly with Art Nouveau elements.
The construction year of the listed building was 1898 (year of completion); the new building with components I and II followed in the 1960s. The entire building has five upper floors in the old building, two upper floors in the new building and a common basement (cellar).
From 2011 – 2012, the extension in the Lobeckstraße, originating from 1960s, was renovated, insulated and energy-optimized. Several hundred square meters of new office space have been created.
The commercial units, divided into small sections, are currently rented to different users in the creative industries.

Business and neighbourhood
In the immediate vicinity of the AQUA-Carré numerous projects and initiatives, closely related to the philosophy of the AQUA Carré and which have been partly inspired by it, have been established here in recent years. They are making the area around the nearby Moritzplatz more and more into a centre for creative people. For tenants of the AQUA Carré, this creates valuable synergies and opportunities for networking: Modulor Planet, Aufbauverlag, Prinzessinnengärten, Betahaus. Only a few minutes’ walk from the industrial complex are the distinctive, vibrant neighbourhood streets around the Oranienstraße – with its restaurants, cafes, bars and sophisticated retail stores. Additionally, the proximity to the former “Checkpoint Charlie” and to galleries that have been newly established here has lent the building complex new charm. For a break from city life, the banks of the nearby Luisenstädtischer canal, also known by the Kreuzbergers as the “Engelbecken” or “Angel’s Basin”, offer an invitation to take a relaxing stroll in the direction of the Landwehr canal.
