Active since the Weimar Republic, architect Richard Brademann left his mark on the appearance of Berlin S-Bahn (commuter rail). Commissioned by the transit company, he built modest, functional station buildings faced with clinker bricks, electrical supply facilities, and signal towers. A member of the Nazi party, Brademann also designed six stations for the new north-south S-Bahn line, including the Humboldthain S-Bahn station, which was dedicated in 1935 after a year of construction. Because the station was constructed in a heavily built-up area, the section of track had to be set in a curve. The platform follows the same curve. The seven-sided station building has been preserved in its basic form; however, the facade was remodeled, extensions were added, and the aesthetics were spoiled by a kiosk right in the middle of the service counter area. Architecturally the station exhibits strong references to the transportation structures of the 1920s, and no specifically Nazi style elements can be discerned.
