Rooftop penthouse Berlin Savignyplatz – Kunstvolle Freiheit

private space link

Refurbishment of a rooftop at Berlin Savignyplatz into a luxury penthouse.
rooftop plan

The landscape architect client wishes to free his rooftop apartment from the clumsy relics inherited from its previous renovation. All bulky items should find a place, the stuff disappear in wooden meanders along the walls. A river where gargantuan pines float flows now through a forest of poles struck by light flashes. The navigable space continuum is modulated by large sliding doors, acting as sluices.
He cultivates his interior, as an art gallery, for concert venues, as a movie theater. He cooks the harvests of the two roof gardens. He likes to receive but also to confine in a lush privacy. He can sink into a leafy space of switchable uses pruned with sunny clearings. The bright living room turns into an alpine hut with a crackling fire after the turn off spotlights.
