Berlin’s Corbusierhaus has the most amazing light of any parking structure we’ve ever seen

There’s something about Berlin and its car parks.

Unité d’Habitation of Berlin (German: Corbusierhaus) is an apartment building located in Berlin, Germany, designed by Le Corbusier following his concept of Unité d’Habitation. Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation concept was materialised in four other buildings in France with a similar design (source).

One gets the feeling that if Caravaggio could paint the inside of a parking garage, it would look a bit like the one at Corbusierhaus.

This is one of the more visually striking modern automotive videos we can recall seeing. Kudos to all of the folks involved in its production for pushing the artistic boundaries of what an automotive film can be.

You can see behind-the-scenes stills from the film here, as well as take a look inside Benton Performance’s garage from our own earlier feature here.

This is the story of my reborn 1983 Peugeot 505 STI.

My parents still say that “Peugeot” was one of my first words.
