Ivy’s design worked with rent24 Coworking to revive the former administrative building of the “Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe”, completed in 1930. Featuring two floors with 1,500 square meters of workspaces and amenities, rent24 Potsdamer Strasse 182 brings its pioneering model of the workplace to Berlin' creative entrepreneurs. Ivy’s design kept the rent24 DNA, but re-envisioned its look and feel to capture the energy and spirit of the building's prior role as a mid-century creative hub for the entertainment industry.
4 meetings rooms
The meeting rooms all have a specific theme and are supported by the fitting wallpaper. The meeting room equals a dinning room in this case.
The boundaries between the home and work space are blurred here, and with intention. The colors are warm and cozy and the lounge area equals a living area.
The co- working has a recognizable black and white logo and they wanted to show it off: there is a wall in ever of the buildings they inhabit with a quirky and inspiring graffiti art.
The meeting room has a fitting wallpaper and red curtains. Mars. The conference table is square and wooden and the rug turquoise too.
Berlin is the lite motif of the entire building and so a hallway with walls covered in an U- Bahn facade is only fitting.
The inspirational quotes are a recurring topic in the co- working space areas and the black walls only make it that more impactful.
The gigantic and open space is used in a convenient way: without much effort, simplistic shapes and ground colors bring the industrial background to life and do the trick for social life while at it.
The reception area is the first hint into the whole design of the co- working space. It is an eclectic mix with vintage and modern elements, uplifted with greenery.
The reception waiting area is bold and pink. Accentuated further with the rug that plays on the Memphis design aesthetics, it provides for an eclectic mix.
The hanging transparent chairs are a looker, and the playful playground winter garden feel is complete.
The longitude of the co- working area, and the white linear space are used as a background to play with prime colors- inspired by the 80s classic- the Mondrian painting.
The kitchen and dinning area are essential in any co- working space, and the combination of wood and industrial chandelier give it a traditional and firm, yet modern look.
The classy and refined lounge reading area plays on the idea of old school cigar rooms and the outdated idea of a manly retreat becomes a modern concept with a twist.
The walls in the activity room are decorated with unique art by a Croatian artist. The wall art is funky and playful; it is lively and cheerful. The lighting is decent.
