The site was located in Neu Kolln – a multicultural Berlin neighborhood. The intervention has a very strategic field condition. The design actively tried to engage the ethnic economy of the street by opening up the street edge of the building. The Building tries to fit into the urban edge of shop fronts by introducing its own shops but sized to the scale of the existing ones. The intervention of the external staircase created the possibilities of user based appropriation.
