Regional information centre

Information centre at IGA Park

The goal of the building is to create an information centre where visitors can get to know the sights, history and future of the Marzahn-Hellersdorf district. The centre handles tourist information for the district at the same time. The information centre is intended not only for the general public but also for residents, initiative groups and associations in Marzahn-Hellersdorf. It also houses a multipurpose room for events for 50 to 100 people.

The building can be divided into three parts according to the relationships between the individual rooms, which can also be read as three building structures in the design. The centre of the building is the tourist information centre. One of the buildings is slightly rotated so that visitors coming from both the north side of the bus park and from the south from the underground stations and bus stops can access the information centre. This creates effective links to the city while ensuring that the main entrances remain visible. At the same time, this angle provides an extensive view of the building from a distance and attracts visitors from both sides into the building. The entrance areas also feature a projecting roof as an additional element. By rotating the building’s volume, the property’s exterior is contained on the northwest side and acquires an additional spatial edge.
