The concepts for acoustics and lighting from the Stuttgart-based Nimbus Group create a pleasant, high-class working atmosphere in the new Berlin editorial offices of the largest online platform for architects.

"FRIZZ23" in Friedrichstrasse in the centre of Berlin is an extraordinary building project: it is Germany's first co-housing building for culture-related enterprises. Deadline Architekten from Berlin designed the striking building with the dark wooden facade and projecting balconies. The building's new utilisation concept covers 4,700 square metres and encompasses various creative enterprises, small hotel lofts, educational facilities, catering, retail and housing. The editorial team from competitionline – Germany's leading online platform for architects – moved into the new build's centre block.

Rough industrial charm meets natural materials

The new, minimalistically designed editorial offices make an open, light-filled impression with their glass partitions, and walls and ceilings of exposed concrete. "People are really enthusiastic about the building's rough industrial charm with the high ceilings and the smooth concrete, screed and glass surfaces," explain Tanja Ptacek and Dirk Bonnkirch from competitionline, who each played a major role in supervising the move and designing the interior. Natural materials such as wood and felt create a haptic contrast to the blank, smooth concrete. Coloured curtains accentuate the rooms.

High-quality lighting and acoustics solutions for a creative team
>

Although staff in FRIZZ23 have a little less space than in the old editorial offices, the quality of the rooms has improved considerably. Working spaces have been created that promote communication among the publisher's employees. competitionline asked the Nimbus Group's interiors experts for advice when it came to lighting solutions and the acoustics situation. The client opted for innovative Nimbus Lighting Pads, which act simultaneously as both efficient sound absorbers and glare-free light sources. In cool shades of blue and grey, the round, suspended Pads with their haptically pleasing fleece surfaces harmonise perfectly with the design of the rooms, whereby the light source of the Lighting Pads remains almost invisible even when switched on. The small, high-performance LEDs integrated into the Pad only become visible upon closer inspection. They enable a very high luminous efficacy and are therefore predestined for deployment in offices.

Luminaires for a diverse range of uses
>

The lighting and acoustics concept is completed by other Nimbus luminaires with the same clear-cut, geometrical aesthetics as the Lighting Pads. The slim Force One LED floor-standing workplace luminaire blends in just as harmoniously with the office's industrial charm as the classically elegant Roxxane Office desk luminaire and the minimalistic, linear Modul L 196 suspended luminaire. The interior design and high-quality fittings create pleasant room acoustics and ideal lighting, thus making the new editorial office an ideal place for staff to work, confer and communicate.
