6. Library in Berlin

2009 / In collaboration with Bruno Fioretti Marquez architects
In Berlin

The public library is shaped by thick solid brick walls and a wooden roof with an offset folding geometry. In order not to put a long flat body in the small and clustered old town of Köpenick, the desired continuous space was stacked on three floors and connected with the help of airspaces. Together with the former girls’ school, which was converted into an administrative building, the brick buildings form an ensemble at the old market in Köpenick.
