BIH Digital Labs @ Charité

Consulting, 2021

The digital labs set up near the main Charite campus are a meeting place for exchange between various specialists, constantly changing and developing teams spread over four levels in the building.

“I’ve seen innovation coworking spaces around the globe from med-tech to rental spaces to accelerator and incubator programs, and you can tell what spaces you think work well. But that doesn’t mean you know how to plan and build them. We didn’t know the how-to, how to plan, how to build, what to think about, and all that Kinzo brought to the table.” Tim Huse Head of Life Science Incubator and Digital Health Accelerator
It’s all more flexible, with desks on wheels providing an adaptable co-working space for teams to start developing their projects.

BIH built its working lab structure in tangible form through a thorough understanding of program requirements along with Kinzo’s user-centered design approach. We asked the right questions, conducted user workshops that addressed change management and fully furnished the interior spaces…

„Kinzo wanted to know what happens in this environment – the people, how they work, the processes, how we organize work in this space. We were able to create a space that is tailor-made for the users of the building and not just another standard office.“ Dr. Ljudmila Borisenko, Team Leader Location Development, Space Management and Onboarding
