Macro Sea revamps 100-year-old factory as shabby chic student housing in Berlin’s hippest neighborhood

Macro Sea teamed up with the Council on International Educational Exchange, one of the largest non-profit study abroad organizations, to redesign the 85,000 square foot industrial complex dating back to the beginning of the century.

The design combines classrooms, dining areas and common living rooms, all of which act as a kind of “social incubator” which facilitates exchange and debate.
