RE RUIN
HOME BERLIN
art

Building their home amid the ruins of an abandoned GDR property in east Berlin gave artist Anselm Reyle and architect Tanja Lincke the chance to rediscover the beauty of creative freedom. The home and its surroundings are defined by the juxtaposition between Reyle’s maximalism and Lincke’s affinity for the raw beauty of functional materiality.

“OUR TASTES ARE CONTRARY, BUT WHEN WE DO THINGS TOGETHER IT’S PERFECTLY BALANCED. WE UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER. IT*S NEVER A COMPROMISE.”

The story featuring the home and studio of Anselm Reyle and Tanja Lincke is in Ark Journal VOL III.
