propeller island - this means aesthetic sensation for the eye and the ear. propeller island is a pseudonym used by the german artist lars stroschen to publish his audio-visual creations. unlimited diversity, repeating nothing and copying nothing are the guiding principles here.
the most popular result: the CITY LODGE, a habitable work of art in the heart of berlin, whose wealth of ideas never fails to attract everyone into its gravitational field and to continue inspiring guests long afterwards. a magnet for creative individuals, those weary of consumption, those who see things differently, philosophers and seekers of perspective and vision. frequented by personalities from around the globe, this vision machine is a much-desired shooting site for photo sessions and video clips. is that perhaps the reason these rooms seem so familiar to you...? >mehr
no, this is not one of those trendy designer is more like a private planet which has evolved in unique synchronicity with the tastes of its inventor. here, nothing has been bought, every single construction is a singular novelty, everything is authentic and everything has its own special function - nothing is fake, nothing is mere decoration. no plastic and no papier-mâché.
there is not just colourfulness behind these walls, but pure composition in vivid colours. the CITY LODGE is intensive but subtle, ironic but coy, an all-round work of art, including its resident sound-sculptures.
whoever utilises the simple mechanical constructions here, really sees and knows what he/she is doing - a winking and welcoming alternative in a world of silicium cells. characteristically, this contrast programme to virtual and cyber spheres was conceived by someone who otherwise does everything by computer...
whoever desires freedom can find perennial inspiration here. truly. the unfolding mental universe of our guests is the joy of the creator.

there have been tourists who have named the City Lodge the highlight of their trip to berlin. many thanks for such a compliment! >close
