»On the horizon, at the periphery, at the border, differences stand out since one is aware one is crossing out of one territory into another.« Sennett, Richard, the Open City, 2006

The threshold as bridge and barrier: Berlin Weissensee at the intersection of commercial and residential, transforming into an open, welcoming and protective arrival point. A building that repairs existing structures and playfully inserts itself; creating possibilities, cultivating places of communication, tolerating differences and resonating into the neighbourhood.
