At Berlin's Alexanderplatz – one of the most vibrant districts of the German capital – modern working environments for companies from different industries of the digital age have emerged. The Lindner Group took over the tenant fit-out over seven floors and the technical building equipment.

Workplaces Rethought

The building ensemble of the Berlin publishing house at Alexanderplatz has played an important role in the German media landscape for decades. Recently, the Pressehaus Podium was added to the historic complex. The Office Group has leased the entire extension and now rents flexible office worlds here – especially to dynamic companies that need space for growth. With future-proof plans and well thought-out concepts, the architects of gmp Architekten therefore created flexible working environments: The office spaces with meeting rooms and co-working spaces can be adapted to the tenants in terms of size and equipment. Quiet rooms and communal areas give employees the opportunity to organise their working day individually. Food and fitness facilities as well as a café in the building also support the different working methods of the users.

Tenant Fit-out = Flexibility + Design + Individuality

As general contractor, Lindner realised the tenant fit-out from the ground floor to the sixth floor of the building, tailored to the individual wishes of the tenants. In addition to the production and installation of doors, ceiling and floor systems, the scope of work also included extensive dry lining services as well as carpentry and painting work. The new building combines functionality with design throughout: The Lindner Life Nature partitions made of timber and glass not only provide separation and privacy in the office and fitness areas, but also a warm and at the same time timeless atmosphere. Mobile partition systems enable a simple and quick reaction to spatial changes. The tenant fit-out was completed with floor coverings of carpet, parquet and terrazzo as well as a furniture package – consisting, among other things, of two bar counters and an advertising pedestal made of LinCrete glass fibre reinforced concrete.

Building Technology according to Highest Standards

The Pressehaus Podium not only convinces with its exclusive tenant fit-out: To ensure that the Sky Lounge can impress with a spectacular view over Berlin, Lindner installed a special solution for the technical building equipment in the lounge's ceiling system. A large part of the building's air-conditioning technology is now hidden behind a wall cladding made of veneered and stained panels suspended from the ceiling – so the impressive panorama of the capital is not distracted at all. An additional maintenance level at the top of the Pressehaus Podium also allows for easy access to the blind motors. Designed as a baffle ceiling, the Lindner acoustic ceiling complements the walk-in level with suspended building services. Extensive plumbing, electrical and insulation work finished the Lindner Group's building services.
