The Sky Germany series will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK and follows a boy called Juri (Tristan Göbel) and his father Jaschek (Charly Hübner) who move into a rundown housing complex following the death of Juri's mother, only to discover the building has a life of its own.
Feeding on the suffering of its inhabitants, Juri must team up with the other residents to take on the building and convince his father back to the light, after Jaschek falls deep under the building's spell.
Hausen will hit screens next year.
The two-minute trailer sees Juri and other residents of the building taunted by their own traumatic memories within its walls.
"This house is not just a building," a character explains, as black tar and human hands begin to protrude from behind the walls.
"Stay here until there is nothing left of you," the trailer concludes.
"We are very pleased to present Hausen to our viewers," said Sky Germany executive producer Quirin Schmidt.
"With a top-class cast, an impressive set and a wonderful crew, the special world of Hausen came alive under Thomas Stuber's direction.
"Through visual and narrative power, the series combines horror, mystery and drama into an emotional and intimate play in an 'obsessive' prefabricated concrete building, the likes of which have never been seen before on German television."
Hausen will air on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK in 2021.
