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 organic design of Olivio and its functional versatility due to the modular design of this luminaire family is inspired by role models from nature. As a result Olivio forms the basis for light concepts in urban living areas where the focus is on the well-being of people. Olivio luminaire heads are available in the sizes Grande, Medio and Piccolo and can be combined with various arms and pole types from the three design lines Sistema, Floracion and Candelabra. Yet it is not just the design that can be adapted individually according to the situation – various optics and light colours from 2,700 to 4,000 Kelvin also cater for challenging lighting tasks efficiently and without glare: from illumination of paths and squares, floodlighting of façades and accent lighting of buildings. The new Olivio Cap also reduces light scatter and for special requirements, with its camera and loudspeaker modules, Olivio can be integrated into smart application scene. The special wooden-pole aesthetic emphasizes the Olivio's high quality, organic luminaire design. Combined with luminaire heads in a harmonoius colour tone such as bronze, this results in a timelessly comforting spatial ambience.
