Project: Linden Palais, Shared Workspace, Berlin
Marble kitchens, large loft-like lounge areas with exceptionally high ceilings, and exquisite herringbone parquet flooring, as well as a salon on the top floor provide an impressive backdrop for people to work creatively and productively in the new TOG workspace. Located on the prominent boulevard of Unter den Linden, Linden Palais sits proudly amid Berlin’s most famous and historic monuments. Completed back in 1908, it’s one of the few buildings that wasn’t destroyed during World War II, why it still tells stories of time through striking ornamentation, precious ceiling mosaic, neoclassical stucco, and historic marble inlays that all serve as a stimulating contrast to the newly designed workspaces.
Being the former home of the French embassy, the Linden Palais has amazing views over Berlin and nearly 5.000 sqm of workspace across seven floors – with the upper floor being an extension designed later by David Chipperfield Architects. The space boasts an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, which calls for informal meetings over a cup of coffee brewed by a local coffee roaster, while offering a beautiful home for everyone, from young startups to freelancers or experienced entrepreneurs.
