New Work, Zürich, Berlin, 2017

The new office of the expanding booking platform Get Your Guide is located directly behind Zurich's main railway station, on the 1st and 5th floors of an existing building. Kinzo's interior design picks up on the values and culture of the young company and implements its core values.

To locate the office in its Swiss surroundings, local larch was chosen as the dominant material – based on the traditional wooden architecture of the Alpine region.
Different meeting boxes provide for different uses: Think tanks alternate with casual meetings and whiteboard rooms.

On the 5th floor, Kinzo has created a co-working space with seminar rooms in a more neutral design in order to offer the extension space for rent as an option.

Since its founding in 2009, travelers from more than 155 countries have booked over 15 million tours, activities and attraction tickets through GetYourGuide. The company is based in Berlin, Germany, and has offices in 14 countries worldwide.

„After a long and thorough search for our new headquarters, we found the perfect space in Ampere,“ says Eva Glänzer, VP of People at GetYourGuide.

Get Your Guide at the Humboldt substation (Ampere) in Berlin

For the GetYourGuide Germany headquarters, Kinzo has created a concept for the listed Humboldt transformer station (Ampere) with approx. 11,475 square meters of rental space spread across the 5 buildings of the complex, transforming it into an innovative, attractive and identity-creating office design.

On the western side of the hall, the gallery level is wide open so that the room height and the interior façade views can be experienced. A wide passageway along the entire northern side of the façade remains free across the entire height of the room.

Parallel to this, a spacious seating landscape connects the two levels in the hall as a staircase. The rear of the staircase landscape remains unobstructed and open to the existing ceramic tiles. As you walk along the staircase, you can see both sides of the hall. The historic flooring is left visible in the center of the staircase, below the staircase and in the meeting room.
