Interior design for Instituto Cervantes Berlin. School, library and auditorium
School / Classrooms / Library / Auditorium
2017 - to date
The building is a listed building and was built by Kayser & v. 1894-1895 Großheim and Otto March.
The Instituto Cervantes relocates from five floors to just three floors in the Rosenstraße in Berlin and needs a strong design to make the new premises an identity building for the institute. The use includes classrooms for language teaching, a library, an auditorium and a social room.
The project proposes an adaptation of the existing premises without changing the character of the existing building.
The Spanish architecture firm Carlos Arroyo Arquitectos has developed a design that predominantly characterizes the space through a furniture tailored to the needs of Cervantes. Seemann-Torras Architekturwas hired to implement the design on site.
