Feasibility Study Spektepark , Berlin

Client: Bezirksamt Spandau von Berlin
Activity: Feasibility study
Period: 2009-2010
Dimension: 30 ha
Location: Berlin-Spandau

Spektepark, which was created in the 1970s, is a place for social interaction. It serves to overcome social and cultural barriers and promote neighbourly communication — a public park for the 21st century, so to speak. The Spektepark is to be revitalised against the backdrop of changing leisure behaviour and continuously increasing usage requirements. As part of the feasibility study, the qualities and potential of the current park were presented and deficits identified. A new zoning concept follows the high demands for an innovative and sustainable profiling of the Spektepark. Against the background of a number of surveys, this includes the designation of new utilisation options.

The focus – also in connection with the construction of a new gymnasium by TSV 1860 Spandau on the neighbouring car park – is on the construction of a new multi-generational pitch. It offers a variety of sports facilities for younger and older people in the neighbourhood. In addition, the new construction of a climbing rock, the designation of a dog playground, the revision of a ball field and the redesign of the entrance areas have been outlined. On a smaller scale, development measures and new equipment elements are to complement the current status and thinning work is to be carried out on the dense wooded areas to achieve the desired transparency and increase subjective safety. The feasibility study formed an essential basis for discussion at the workshop held on 1 October 2009 with users and multipliers of the Spektepark.

In addition to the construction of the multi-generation square in Spektepark (2009-20213), the qualification of the adjacent Spektegrünzug to the east followed from 2010.
