The House of One.
Three Religions under one roof.

Berlin is soon to become home to something truly unique. Jews, Christians, and Muslims are planning to build a house of worship here – one that brings a synagogue, a church, and a mosque together under one roof. The three separate sections will be linked by a communal room in the center of the building. This will serve as a meeting place, where worshippers and members of the public can come together and learn more about the religions and each other.

The Initiators

The House of One is the product of a grassroots group of three religious communities. The initial idea came from a protestant church community which then joined forces with a Jewish community - with a rabbinical seminary - and a Muslim initiative for dialogue.

The Architecture

The House of One is a contemporary expression of religious life and as such must be expressed in an equally modern architectural language. Learn more about the design of the Berlin based architects Kuehn Malvezzi.

Die drei großen monotheistischen Religionen in einem Haus vereint, bietet die Chance noch Fremdes kennen zu lernen und die eigenen Grenzen zu erweitern. Eine hoffentlich Verständigung und Frieden stiftende Idee.

Meine Frau und ich haben heute erstmalig von diesem Vorhaben gehört und sind davon sehr berührt worden.
Wir hoffen, sicherlich mit vielen Anderen, dass es bald zum ersten Spatenstich kommt.

The location

The history of Berlin is filled with great successes, new beginnings, sudden endings, and immeasurable guilt. Its Jews were emancipated around 1800, and then destroyed between 1933 and 1945. The Berlin Wall became the symbol of a divided world when it was built in 1961, and was then transformed into an enduring image of peace as it fell in 1989. The House of One on Petriplatz, the medieval birthplace of Berlin, aims to add a new and hopeful chapter to the diverse history of this city.
