Bezirksamt Mitte von Berlin
A contemporary renewal of the existing park area is based on elements significant in terms of the history of garden art. The formal and spatial characteristics of the former design are taken on and refined within the framework of a cautious transformation.
The thick existing belt of trees and shrubs gets opened by concerted interventions. The thus created ‘woodland isles’ become the distinctive feature of the new park. They interlace the park space with the urban surrounding; they are both connecting and protecting elements. In appearance a continuous hedge, they link together the single parts of the park to a large consistent open space, both in form and content.
