Several Berlin dailies reported today that the Federal Chancellery is to get an annex, connected to the main building by a (second) bridge. The annex will be built next to the Ministry of the Interior, next to the spot of today’s heli-pad which, in the future annex, is supposed to be sitting on a plate, atop of the building.

The new annex, which is slated to be completed in the second half of the 2020s, is designed by architects Charlotte Frank and Axel Schultes, who already designed the existing Chancellery, which, when it first opened in 2001, quickly received the nickname, federal laundromat, for its alleged resemblance to a washing machine.
