Efremidis Gallery in Berlin
29 Aug 2021
Design: CAMA A
Location: Berlin, Germany
Conversion of the former IBM computer centre into Efremidis Gallery, a place of art. In the building, which was built in the 60s by Rolf Gutbrod, the new gallery occupies the entire ground floor. In the past, the latest computer models were exhibited here – today it is a space where contemporary art is shown.
The pavement literally flows into the ground floor. A few steps lead down to the gallery space, which is literally embedded in Ernst-Reuter-Platz. The ramifications of the enormous ventilation system bear witness to its past as a computer centre. These were exposed and thus staged like a permanent installation.
What was the brief?
The former IBM server room was to be redesigned as a gallery
What were the key challenges?
Exhibition walls had to be erected and an office built in without changing the character of the room
What were the solutions?
Die neuen Ausstellungswände wurden von der Konstruktion des unter Denkmalschutz stehenden Hauses abgerückt und stehen frei im Raum. Eine Wand ist fahrbar gestaltet. Das Büro findet im niedrigeren Teil des Serverraumes platz. Über Treppen wurde eine Verbindung zwischen dem Straßenbereich, der Ausstellungsfläche und dem Büro hergestellt.
