Gate is located in a classical Berlin courtyard situation in two 19th Century buildings called "Remisen" that used to house a smith Workshop.
Within the Backdrop of the heritage protected buildings we placed a very clean space, contrasting the romantic image usually associated with a courtyard in Berlin. The interior metal structure translates the traditional smith work into contemporary industrial metal works.
A grid of 1m x1m is inserted into the irregular shape of the old buildings covering floor walls and ceiling. This contrast is exaggerated by a void between the grid and the existing structure filled with gravel.
