The box apartment out-of-space is located in Top project space in buzzing Neukölln. Here you can enjoy the authentic feeling of creative Berlin. The box apartment is inspired by the financialization of space in cities worldwide, such as Hong Kong, where the free market has been successfully deregulated and 100.000s live in so-called “coffin homes”: here the size of your home is equivalent to the size of your body.

The space
The apartment is equipped with a broad range of utilities; inspired by recent financialization of the monetary system, in which accumulation of value follows through semiotic circulation, rather than through the realization of material goods, the conveniences of the apartment are present in the form of symbolic representations. The rental price has been adjusted to not exceed the amount provided by the German welfare state to precarious workers: 12,50 € a day. As this sum hardly reflects the price of any available apartments in Berlin, out-of-space is a first step to establish a niche market with huge potential. Tenants will acquire a signed contract of temporary ownership of out-of-space for the duration of their stay.

AVAILABILITY: During your stay in out-of-space, which coincides with the opening hours of Top project space a custodian will be present to tend to your needs and questions. Due to Covid-regulations you will be able to observe the box apartment from the outside only.

NEIGHBORHOOD: Located at Schiller promenade you will find lots of opportunities for intercultural exchange on a street level, as many former tenants have been forced to leave their apartments due to real estate speculation.

NEIGHBORHOOD: Located vis-à-vis Görlitzer Park you will find lots of opportunities for intercultural exchange, as many refugees from former European colonies have been forced to leave their devasted social and material economies. As most have been illegalized by European Asylum-regulations many now offer their services to German natives and tourists in the park.
GETTING AROUND: The Buses 265 and 165 depart close to the main entrance of Flutgraben; UBahn U1 is in walking distance of the premises.
