A vibrant office design with a fresh coastal escape
A new-generation creative campus for Berlin and far beyond,
redefining new media, art, entertainment and social policy.
To reimagine the (now largely derelict) iconic BUFA Berlin film studios as a self-sustaining, 24-hour global destination for creative, educational, social and co-working opportunities at the cutting edge of art, new media and entertainment
We revitalised many of the original BUFA buildings - the freestanding studios, post production facilities and prop houses - to blend old and new. Large glazed areas link two previously standalone structures, extending the spatial footprint and creating covered walkways to state-of-the-art studios, screening rooms and co-working spaces, without sacrificing the idiosyncrasies of the original architecture. The space-scaping is also unusually flexible; the campus’ epicentre plays host to several outdoor areas for both large-scale (festival-sized) and intimate events.
