Rathaus Plaza Berlin
Oversized luminaires for outdoor reading areas
The Rathaus plaza is one of the most important public spaces in the Berlin district of Wedding. Especially the reading garden at the new Schiller Library connects building and open space in a special way: Spacious benches invite you to linger and read under the open sky. The outdoor reading room is complemented by oversized, sculptural reading lights made of concrete.
Three custom-made modules of our fbl series, built into the lighting shaft, illuminate the colored interior of the lampshade and enlivens the appearance of the colored light. For exactly positioned openings at the concrete casting, mawa produced the necessary moulded inserts, including placeholders for the cable runs. After completion, the light modules were mounted on site. The redesign was awarded the German Landscape Architecture Prize 2019.
