Entry Description

In Berlin, on the site of “Urbane Mitte” in Gleisdreieck Park, a mobile brewery and beer
garden designed by GRAFT has been erected in summer 2016. The building volume of BRLO
BRWHOUSE combines gastronomy, events, administration and the art of brewery and is
remarkable for its container architecture in modular design.
GRAFT envisions a free standing building consisting of oversee containers. The
pre-fabricated containers are altered individually according to their function and are
stacked in order to work as mobile home base for the young company BRLO. For the time
being, a temporary usage of 3-5 years is intended, later, the building can easily be
dismantled and reconstructed in another place. By setting four containers in length and
stacking three containers onto each other, the cube forms a space of about 600 m² and
offers enough space for the brewery equipment, as well as room for guests, events, and
