Park at Gleisdreieck

Berlin, Germany

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.
