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.
