LocationFreie Schule Anne-Sophie Berlin, Clayallee 328, 14169 Berlin-Zehlendorf, Germany
Text description provided by the architects. A two-court sports hall, which blends in with the highly expressive building ensemble, was erected on the roof of an existing two-story building in the ‘Zehlendorfer Welle’ shopping and health center in Berlin.
The calm cube takes up the clear, modern formal language of the existing buildings, while nonetheless, owing to the choice of materials, being perceived as an entity in its own right. Inside, when it is dark, light penetrates the sports hall’s translucent façade, transforming it into an unusual luminary.
