Generator Hostel Berlin Mitte

The Generator Hostel Berlin Mitte in Germany, hasbeen created by Ester Bruzkus together with WAF Architects and DesignAgency.

Generator Berlin Mitte is the newestlocation in Generator’s quickly expanding chain of distinctive and eclecticurban design hostels. Within walking distance of the lively Hackescher Markt,Alexanderplatz, Museum Island, and iconic Kunsthaus Tacheles, GeneratorMitte transforms two 19th century office buildings with the artistic characterof Berlin’sstreetscapes and the variety of experiences they offer.

Emphasizing the brand’s collaborativespirit, Ester Bruzkus, from Ester Bruzkus Architects, was invited to lead thedesign team. Working together, Bruzkus, Mark Asipowicz from WAF Architects andGenerator’s design lead, Anwar Mekhayech, with his Toronto based DesignAgency, infused theproject with a dynamic character.

Guests enter through Generator’shistoric courtyard, past Bella Leonard’s wire embroidered stainless steel ‘G’sculpture, and are welcomed into Generator’s vibrant communal spaces, includinga social café and canteen, a chill-out library, a bar and a cool, subterranean,skylit gallery and event space. According to Ester Bruzkus, “We wanted toimmerse travellers in the unique character of Berlin, a city of incredible contrasts. Sowe came up with a design that transforms the interior into an unpredictableexperience through layers of art, materials and textures.”

The café and reception are organized bya layer of wood boards punctured by a horizontal line of wooden pegs for bothfunction and display, predictability and playfulness. The wood walls merge withseating platforms from which to see and be seen. Denim, neon pink and orangeupholstered cubes provide flexible seating and inject liveliness. The whitewalls above the pristine Corian café counter serve as a backdrop for Frenchartist Sebastian Preschoux’s whimsical and geometric string drawings that hangfrom the snaking exposed pipes and electrical conduits. Preschoux’s surprisinglydecorative optical abstraction transports visitors from the outside world.

The canteen and adjacent library impartthe themes of sociability and flexibility that are of primary importance toGenerator. British artist Luke Embden’s mural wraps the canteen with hiscolourful caricature of Berlin,drawn in response to an artist residency at Generator. A collection of local“off-the-shelf” materials are juxtaposed to create the feeling of a busy,ad-hoc ‘eat-in-kitchen’. The cozy couches in the adjacent library create theperfect setting for travellers to chill out and share stories from theiradventures.
