THE SHELF – is seeking a dialogue with its environment. It is taking the typical Berlin Stadtregal (a building composed of flexible shelf systems) and completely reinventing it. Rotating louvres bring the façade of the five-storey building complex to life. The two-storey entrance to the courtyard invites you to go on a discovery tour of the urban environment. Even a fleeting glance when passing by enables you to catch a glimpse of the green oasis. This is where a working and residential environment of pioneering quality is being created.
