Container Student Housing, Berlin


The inspiration for the proposal was a monastery with a wall around.

We are using containers like „Lego“ to build a simple structure, which encloses the whole building site. This solution provides protection against the sound from the nearby railway tracks and creates by that a calm inner garden atmosphere. The rooms are oriented towards the courtyard and similar to cells of monks fitted only with essential equipment. The living units are accessible via galleries along the outer facade. In order to improve sound insulation and protection against weather, the gallery is covered by a polycarbonate shell.
