The “Children’s Embassy”, situated in the Moabit neighbourhood of Berlin near the central station, will become an education and meeting centre for the SOS Children’s Village. The building will provide space for job orientation and qualification for young people requiring special assistance as well as for new social projects for people with disabilities. The association will also use the embassy to support children’s rights and equal opportunities in Germany at a political level.

Ludloff+Ludloff Architekten, together with the engineering company ARUP, decided on a hybrid construction with a reinforced concrete skeleton structure, thus creating the unusual building envelope that was realised by Rubner.
