SIGNA Real Estate Berlin

The German headquarter of the largest project developer in Europe is located at the top of the Upper West Tower in Berlin. The interior design captivates with its unusual concept. Materials inspired by industry, such as metal and concrete, combine with the more domestic woods and textiles to yield a contrast-rich interior with an especially warm lighting atmosphere.

    • Art Invest Headquarters

      Project

      With the modernization of the office building at Enggasse 3 in Cologne, Art Invest Real Estate has put to use new technical solutions for office space lighting in its own headquarters.
      The functional lighting is designed to align with the circadian rhythm. The lighting control system adjusts the color temperature and illumination intensity to match the progression of the day. The program can be overridden by the user to adjust the light in a given room. The glare-free and homogeneous direct light, the authentic appearance of the indirect components and the mixing of the two color temperatures were determined specifically for this project in cooperation with the manufacturer, thus jointly advancing the product's development

    • Alter Wall

      Project

      The architectural ensemble at Alter Wall 2-32 is composed of five buildings directly next to Hamburg's City Hall. The historically listed block was renovated to house shops, restaurants and high-end office space, including a large interior courtyard. Central importance has been given to the new Bucerius Passage, an arcade with bridge that now serves as a new and important passageway in Hamburg's city center.
      We designed special lighting fixtures for this arcade: a pendant luminaire of a hyperboloid construction that is distinguished by interlaced metal bars from which light rings hang. Hidden in these rings are fixed light points that illuminate the floors and ceilings of the passageway and colonnade. The dimensions of the lighting fixtures vary widely depending on their position in order to match the given spatial dimensions.
      These large-format light objects create a light motif visible from afar that harks back to the grand historical Alster arcades and gives this special place a festive atmosphere in the evenings.

    • Heilig-Geist-Passage

      Project

      Following the motto "light attracts people" the DomAquarée passage was shaped more friendly and inviting by installing large pendant luminaires. For additional extraordinary lighting effects cylindrical hanging lamps were designed. By using controllable LED rings inside different light scenarios are possible. These possibilities reach from atmospheric lighting with warm white light in the evening to dynamic, colored setups for special occasions.

    • ZEBRA Deloitte

      Project

      The facade in its progression, materials, lighting and detail was designed by us. It is the unique feature of the ZEBRA located on Frankfurt's Europaallee. The lighting for the work areas reflects the work environments developed by Deloitte and illuminates the different areas with spotlights and decorative luminaires to give expression to the utmost individualization of each area.

    • UEC Tower 1

      Project

      Material studies were performed for the foyer and the special areas of Tower 1. The planned use of high-grade steel wall and ceiling liners was assessed in terms of light actinism. The images show in reflections of the luminaires how the direction of rolling and the surface pattern influence the light reflection.

      The project was not realized.
