About Kinzo

We are a Berlin-founded architecture firm with a special focus on interior design, New Work and building in existing contexts. In an international team we develop special spaces that bring people together. We advise and design for more innovation, quality, efficiency and sustainability.

Our Vision: Create Places To Be

We create places that attract and inspire people again and again. Sustainable, successful and unique. To achieve this, we look at the city, the culture, the architecture – and, of course, the users who move around in it. Their perspective is our most important planning tool.

Sustainability at Kinzo

For us, sustainability means long-term project consulting and the processing of high-quality materials and solutions. We conduct ongoing material and product research, educate ourselves and support manufacturers in developing environmentally friendly manufacturing methods. Already today, many of our projects are DGNB and LEED certified.

Numerous recycled materials were used for the Nike One Central HQ in Berlin, including shredded Nike textiles, original Berlin subway tiles and old gym floors.
