What it is

Atelier Gardens is a space in Berlin where actors of societal transformation can do their work, healing the rifts of

Soil, Soul and Society.

Regenerating the Earth beneath our feet, reconnecting with what is possible, and rebuilding a more sustainable future – together.

Rooted in Place

The beautiful red-brick Film Studios are the home of the Berliner Union Film Ateliers (BUFA) and have been a place for creativity and storytelling for more than 100 years.

We are now opening up this space, inviting agents of societal transformation to create a new story with their actions.

Ever evolving

A garden, much like an atelier, is never finished. There is neither a desired end-state, nor a final product.


Like the two,

our space is perpetually evolving.

‘A new event, workshop
and conference space‘.

A pioneering landscape,
where nature takes over.

Unique spaces to work &

create positive change
