2002 – 2003 | Berlin, Germany
A new coloured and mirrored curved passage cuts through the ground floor of an office building on Leipziger Platz, Berlin creating an unexpected spatial experience.
A bright wall with a different colour at either end lines one side of the space. Because of the curved bend in the plan, only one colour is perceptible at first.
The parallel wall has a lightly etched reflective surface that creates a blurred, hazy image of the space and its visitors. When entering the passage this wall reflects the second colour as well as the view out into the open space beyond.
The geometry and choice of reflective materials both on the floor and wall create an endless play of colour and reflection, giving the illusion of depth of space.
