Claudia de Winder, de Winder Architekten, Berlin

Opened in 1999, the GSW highrise in Kreuzberg, Berlin is Germany‘s first ecological highrise. With its red and orange tones changing sunscreen elements, the long, narrow concave building extended the original 17-storey tower, dating from 1961 and is regarded as pioneering in terms of its architecture. The fully glazed 22-storey highrise features a two-layer energy-saving façade which supplies the building with fresh air via an intermediate space.

Since 2016 the GSW highrise and tower has had a new tenant: Rocket Internet SE founded by the Samwer brothers, one of the world‘s most successful Internet companies to which Zalando also belongs. Over 22,000 m² of usable space has been restructured by Berlin architect‘s firm de Winder Architekten conducted by Claudia de Winder into spacious, open-plan offices for 2,200 employees, glass-fronted conference rooms and inspiring communal areas and the German headquarters is now home to the start-up incubator. In addition to an auditorium, a modern conference suite also provides space for creative exchange. Designed by using Brunner ranges which are ideal for modern conferencing needs. Thus, fina conference and fina flex tables were partially customised and given the required electrification. Flexible-use trust and torino folding tables completed the facilities. finasoft conference chairs and ray cantilever chairs ensure exceptional comfort when sitting. For the auditorium, A-Chair stacking chairs with seat liners and row-linking device were chosen. Reception and waiting areas were furnished with the modular banc lounge system.
