Project finish 2020

Elisabet Sundin Architecture

The former Oberpostdirektion in Dernburgstrasse in Berlin-Charlottenburg is getting a full transformation into office spaces. The building is perfect example of Berliner Expressionism from year 2020. Because of it's large spaces, the making of a showroom office space to show future tenants makes sense. Supporting Christian Stöckert Architekten we worked on the execution planning of this space following the guidelines of the overall interior design concept from Meyer+Harre interiors.

The almost 100-year history is translated in the design of the modern lobbies and tea kitchen with an inviting counter and backdrop wall to the kitchen covered in typical rectangular tiles and flanked by walnut lamellas.

In the ceiling a lighting system by flos is making it possible with a diverted range of spotlights, tube and flat pendant lamps to create different moods.

The dividing glass walls with the black framings together with heavy green curtains are a perfect example of modern design historical references. The sanitary facilities have again the tiled walls in a pattern taken from the original design from the 20's, accompanied by fitted black built in sanitary objects, it all feels like a whole.
