A Peek Inside Gravis’ New Berlin HQ
Apple service provider Gravis recently hired interior design firm Preussisch Portugal to design their new workspace in Berlin, Germany.
“In future, the new headquarter will become a meeting hub – the focus will be on exchange, innovation and teamwork. For this purpose, Preussisch Portugal created additional meeting zones and creative areas, but also space for focused work and areas of retreat.
Due to the existing monument protections and fire protection requirements, the greatest possible changes had to be achieved with small, targeted interventions. The objective was to create a central meeting place on each floor. The small, already existing communal kitchen on the 1st floor was transformed into a large communal area for lunch breaks and team events. The unused corridor space now serves as a creative zone for small workshops and spontaneous meetings. Most of the conference rooms were relocated to another building.
The office spaces on the 2nd and 3rd floor were optimised to create spacious areas for the tea kitchens. This creates additional space for meeting and communication. In addition, phone booths on each floor offer the possibility of retreating for telephone calls. A contemporary and ergonomic furniture system with a brand-typical colour and material concept creates a uniform look in the numerous office spaces.
In a separate building, which was previously used as storage space, three flexible conference rooms were installed. The partition walls can be used optionally to create either three small meeting rooms or one large conference room for over 50 participants. A fourth area is optimally suited for creative workshops thanks to a modular furniture system and large whiteboards.”
