The Wannsee neighborhood, comprised of villas from the 1870s, includes a number of magnificent buildings with spacious gardens and direct access to the water. Here, within the structural layout of Am Sandwerder, the planned Orangery will complement the existing three buildings of the property.
By the former outbuilding, a roof consisting of several curved "leaves" made of wood and copper is stretched out towards the existing property wall. This "canopy" - based on the coconut tree - serves both for breeding the plants and for storing them during the winter months. The orangery part used for storage can also be used as a lounge during the warmer months.
For this purpose it is possible to open the glass façade on all sides towards the garden. Between the leaf surfaces curved pads made of glass are stretched repeatedly.
