Perched atop the Design School building at Moritzplatz, a rooftop space emerges. North and south balconies extend outward, embracing the cityscape. A glass curtain wall dissolves the boundary between interior and exterior, inviting the urban panorama within.

A subtle transformation has taken place. A wash of light gray and white replaces the former yellow tones, creating a nuanced atmosphere. The space becomes a blank canvas, ready to be defined by its users and their events.

Here, architecture recedes. It does not impose but rather facilitates. A backdrop, comfortable and functional, for the unfolding narratives of gatherings and celebrations.
