Kala – Playground and Green Space in Berlin-Friedrichshain

Rehwaldt LA: The urban quarters south of Frankfurter Allee are low-density areas with a high green rate („green islands“). Small squares or green spaces accentuate the district and become sites with high amenity values. The design concept aimed to strengthen these characteristics and to enhance a distinctive identity. The existing penguin playground was enlarged into a „big sea“, in which „Stromschollen“ („stream floes“) as climbable objects pick up the image of sheets of ice which are drifting in the current. On the site between Kadiner and Lasdehner street a spacious common area has been implemented which allow a self-evident, easy passage. The open space is structured by only one feature which gives the space its own identity. The exorbitant „Windenwurm“ (winding worm) is bench, reclining area, picnic table and stage at the same time.
