In Berlin’s upcoming district Neukölln, Silke Lorenzen and Sarah Vollmer have created a whimsical little universe in an ancient vacuum cleaner factory.
The two felt something was missing from this area of Berlin and decided to turn the old factory into a small hotel. In an effort to keep the industrial feel of the hall without building separate rooms they came up with the idea of Hüttenpalast. Three revamped caravans and three wooden cabins make up this cozy camp inspired rest stop. Each caravan and hut has been individually designed by a range of artists from around the world and hosts a space in front of it so guests can hangout and have a chat with their next-door campers. The attached cafe and restaurant offers up mostly vegetarian meals while there are plans to grow the onsite garden so that it becomes the main source of fresh ingredients.
