Stiftung House of One – Bet- und Lehrhaus Berlin

One house for the three monotheistic religions, the House of One will be the first building of its kind and will be built on the foundations of Berlin’s oldest church at Petriplatz. The building is composed of different cubic volumes featuring solid brick facades that mark it as a unique place within its busy urban environment. The design takes its starting point in the idea of ‘diversity within unity’. The proposal does not anticipate the triadic unity through one universal sign, but instead creates a framework of conditions for exchange. Each faith will have their own, appropriate place of ritual, whereas a series of central spaces express the idea of universal public space as relation among equals rather than the dominance of one.
The House of Prayer and Learning is a sequence of stations. These are located in the city and in the interior like stations along a route. Each fulfills its own purpose, and jointly these stations form a lively arrangement of situations.
