AM KUPFERGRABEN 10 PDF

It occupies the footprint of a building destroyed in World War II. It is a contemporary building that reacts to its immediate historic context, referencing the past without replicating it. The location is unique in that it is where the urban block pattern typical of Berlin comes to an end and is replaced by a collection of largescale independent structures. As an urban infill, the building is of a height that is consistent with both of its neighbours while developing its own sculptural language.

The intention was to build a modern building which incorporated but did not replicate the past. As part of the cityscape, the composition of the four-storey gallery building reacts to its immediate historic context, while the scale of its window openings reflects the urban dimensions of a corner building.

As an urban infill, the new building connects with both of its neighbouring buildings with regard to their respective building heights and occupies the footprint of the preceding building destroyed in the war , while at the same time developing its own sculptural quality.

The facades are of brick masonry on reconstituted stone courses with no visible expansion joints, using salvaged bricks pointed with slurry.

Large window openings reflect the urban scale of the site and define the composition of the facade, given structure by their untreated wooden sashes. While solid materials that will age well characterise the exterior, the interior is defined by daylight and proportion. The building cores organise the space of the 5. The simple floor plan varies throughout the four storeys depending on the form of the volume and the placement of the window openings. The gallery spaces are side lit from different directions, and daylight is controlled by interior folding shutters.

The intention was to create a series of well proportioned and well lit rooms for living, working, or showing art — in a townhouse dedicated to the arts and directly related to the cultural heart of the city. The gallery was opened in November
