Eye-catcher and new face for the district


1.257 / 5.000



The aim of the building is to create a contact point that provides information about the sights as well as the history and future of the Marzahn-Hellersdorf district and brings them closer to visitors. This is done by integrating the district tourist information office. In addition to the general, interested public, the information center is aimed at residents and initiatives as well as associations from Marzahn-Hellersdorf. A room for events with 50-100 people will allow multifunctional use.

The facade has a representative significance for the district and is intended to promote identification with the place. The facade concept therefore refers to existing structures in Marzahn. The concrete shaped stone walls typical of the district, which develop a great variety and variability from a few shaped stone elements cast in concrete. The facade design takes up this principle. The aim was to offer eight different installation options from a simple element - which can be installed rotated and mirrored with the same construction. Instead of concrete, metal was chosen, which further enhances the interplay of light and shadow and the spatial effect of the facade.
