INTERIOR DESIGN
CHECK POINT CHARLIE

Check point Charlie, the crossing point that had separated West and East Berlin, is in the Heart of Beirut, a Pub conceptualized around two contradictory ideologies of the 20th century.

The interior design and architecture of the space vividly “winner of the Global excellence award” illustrate the simmering ideological conflict between east and west. On the west side the economical prosperity is embodied with a futuristic wall design and a fancy back bar display.

As for the east side, it is obviously reflecting socialism, with a minimalistic architecture and censored painting on the wall. A reproduction of Karl Marx Alley ambiance. 

Separated by the Check point Charlie turned into the DJ booth, the two parts of this city are united with art and music and all visitors are sitting under one roof “the map of Berlin”.
