Art Work, Design Study, Berlin
A three-level, L-shaped brick warehouse situated in a courtyard in central Berlin is reimagined and repurposed in its potential use. This design study provides a holistic concept whereby exhibition spaces, offices, creative labs and a library interact and synergize.
The ground floor is kept as open as possible to maximize the space and existing structure. The restored, existing brick walls and ceilings, together with concrete and steel elements, give the space its unique, authentic character. A sculptural steel spiral staircase is placed centrally in the room and connects the three levels. Steel bookshelves with artwork integration give the library level an intimate atmosphere of stillness. The creative labs on the top level offer a platform for creative work and open collaboration.
