Mercedes-Benz, Zalando, Universal, MTV, Coca-Cola - the axis along the banks of the Spree and Mühlenstraße/Stralauer Allee is already one of Berlin's most interesting addresses. Hardly any other place in the capital will change its face so strongly in the next few years, transform itself so dramatically into an urban-vibrant district, mixed from business and living, entertainment and art, events and gastronomy.In the wake of this dynamic development, a five-storey office building is being built in Revaler Strasse according to the designs of Eike Becker_Architekten. Its loft-like character and the Flex-Space floor plan perfectly meet the needs of eCommerce companies, start-ups and the creative industry. By reflecting the spirit of optimism in its individual design, THE FRAME with its approx. 21.800m² GFA fits perfectly into the urban quarter image. The name THE FRAME underscores the concise concrete frame structure that divides the building horizontally and vertically. The façade makes a powerful statement embedded in the urban landscape, but at the same time has a very differentiated effect due to the shadow effect of the differently deep façade elements. In order to meet different user requirements, the project is designed as a spatially flexible structurable office building. Up to nine office units of approx. 200-400 m2 are available per floor, which can either be used individually, combined as needed, or combined to form a total floor area of ??approx. 3,300 m2. Central zones with lounges, coffee bars and meeting rooms support the versatile flexible design potential for cellular or open-space offices. A spacious roof terrace, loggias on all floors, two green courtyards and gastronomic offers on the ground floor increase the quality of stay. THE FRAME thus forms the optimal spatial framework for the realization of different progressive business models and design formats.
Flexible office space
So far, flexible space accounts for only one to two percent of the total German office stock. But demand is growing rapidly - and accordingly the supply is developing. According to a recent study by JLL, the share of Flex Office Spaces could already be 30 percent. Most of the space is currently in Berlin (305,000 m²), followed by Munich (213,000 m²), Frankfurt (146,000 m²) and Hamburg (137,000 m²). Particularly in demand are hybrid models that enable both open-space and closed-office workplaces. Initially the main growth drivers for start-ups, large corporations and medium-sized companies have now recognized the advantages of flexible working environments.
