This area at Gleis­dreieck is located in the Berlin dis­tricts of Kreuzberg and Schöneberg. In the past, it was the site of the Anhal­ter und Pots­damer Güter­bahn­hof (Goods Sta­tion) while later on the area, which covers an area of 31.5 ha, was left barren. In 2008 a com­pe­ti­tion was announced by the Berlin Senate Admin­is­tra­tion for Urban Devel­op­ment for redesign­ing the area. This was won by the land­scape archi­tects Ate­lier Loidl. Between 2011 and 2014, the Ost­park, West­park and the Flaschen­halspark were opened in turn. The result was a green space and recre­ational site with exten­sive grassed areas, iso­lated groups of trees and sev­eral woods.

Sports and games areas, relics depict­ing the his­tory of the site and wide, bar­rier-free asphalted paths for cyclists and skaters have made the park a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for day-trip­pers. The light­ing con­cept for the indi­vid­ual park areas has been realised using Selux Olivio lumi­naires. Olivio Can­de­labra with bent poles and Olivio Flo­racions in var­i­ous heights, with 3 to 7 heads, empha­sise the park’s urban nature.

  • The distinctive Olivio family is a modern, striking, multifunctional urban lighting system, available in three different sizes with interchangeable reflectors for street and accent lighting applications. This flexible lighting system can be equipped with optical accessories such as honeycomb and ring louvres, coloured and elongation lenses offering further effects and control. Olivio Sistema, Candelabra and Floracion poles and brackets provide total freedom of design and flexible planning.
