Philharmonie Extension

Berlin, 2011–
This project was initiated prior to the founding of Studio Other Spaces.

The extension of the Berlin Philharmonie complements and connects to Hans Scharoun’s Philharmonie and the Kammermusiksaal. It houses rehearsal and office spaces in two open, transparent, sculptural volumes that draw visitors onto the site, creating a dynamic public space; a studio stage and connections to the existing structures are established underground. The shape of the building appears to shift as viewers move past and around it, producing an animated landmark in the urban landscape.
