Refurbishment and extension of a turkish bath for women right in the centre of Kreuzberg, Berlin. This hamam aims at being a central space for contemporary turkish-german bath culture as well as meeting point and promoter of intercultural friendships. The reorganization of the spaces and a completely new interior design bring continuity in the labyrinthine rooms of the hamam and allow for new utilisations, such as a cosmetic area and a new massage space. The unity of space is underlined by engraved panels and tiles, offering a contemporary interpretation of traditional ornaments.
