Real artist loft with ideal light situation in the artist quartier “Reinbeckhalle” – north orientation. Welcome to the Reinbeckhalle - the artists' quarter in Spreelage, known beyond the city limits, offers plenty of space for creativity. The largest of the four former industrial halls is divided into a total of four hall aisles, each with its own steel roof truss with continuous skylight strips. The original cubature and industrial charm of the historic structures were not altered during the renovation and design of the art venue. Thus, the exterior façade impresses with its historic brickwork, while skylight strips, window areas and building services were renewed. The use of the building as an art and cultural center is firmly anchored in the development plan and thus creates the basis for a uniform use of the quarter. The northern and southern hall aisles were divided into individual units that can be accessed independently from the outside. The studio offered here is located on the north side and thus offers ideal indirect daylight. The skylight strip, the wide staircase cut-out and the possibility of shading through external sun protection and retrofittable internal sun protection offer scope for adapting the lighting to the usage requirements of the respective artist. The artificial lighting installed in the studio on the first floor was professionally calculated and installed to create the most uniform and consistent lighting conditions possible in the dark. In total, the approx. 200 m² are distributed over three levels: The studio located on the first floor is accessed through a 3.24 high and 2.90 wide double door set into the glass facade. Deliveries of materials and the removal of large-format works are easily possible here. Two power outlets, fiber-reinforced screed and the storage room with sink located at the rear of the studio provide excellent working conditions. Currently there is a ceramic kiln in the studio, which could be taken over if necessary. The sturdy steel staircase first leads to the mezzanine level with a study and bathroom. The bathroom is tiled and has a shower, sink and toilet as well as connections for a washing machine and dryer. The staircase continues to the gallery level. The enormous room height as well as the skylight strips and large window area to the north also create ideal lighting conditions here. The narrow conservatory in front was designed for fire protection reasons. The bedroom and kitchen area are accessed from the gallery level. Resistant parquet flooring (15 mm solid oak planks) was laid on the mezzanine and gallery levels.
From 1890, residential and industrial development mixed in the Schöneweide district between the Spree and Wuhlheide. The Reinbeckhalle is located as part of the former AEG/KWO site in the middle of the historic industrial belt of Oberschöneweide. The site is only a few meters from the banks of the Spree. The Wuhlheide, a popular recreation area, is only a few minutes away. Stores for daily needs such as supermarkets, bakeries and drugstores as well as restaurants can often be found in the immediate vicinity. Furthermore, the University of Applied Sciences is located in the immediate vicinity. In recent years, Oberschöneweide has experienced an incomparable upswing, which is mainly due to the interaction on art and culture, education and affordable housing. The connection to the public transport network is very good: the nearby streetcar station takes you to relevant junctions of Berlin, e.g. the Ostkreuz, without changing trains. The Schöneweide S-Bahn station is also just a few minutes away.
