DSGV Newsroom

‘Newsroom’ is the new extraordinary office of the communication experts at the German Savings Banks Association (DSGV) and the Sparkassen-Finanzportal, in a former fitness studio in Berlin-Mitte. Kinzo was involved from the preliminary stage to help guide in the transition from a traditional workplace. We conducted workshops, employee surveys and assessed the functional requirements as well as the individual personality of the teams.

The result is an office that combines Berlin “cool” with the clarity and the freshness of the Alps. At the same time, a sophisticated architectural organization enables completely new ways of working. Where people once worked-out, employees now train brain cells, develop communication concepts, and run PR projects.

We have often fallen flat on our faces: but the risk has paid off and Kinzo has undergone an incredible evolution.

We always think three-dimensionally. It’s always about form, function and construction. Everything has to blend harmoniously, everything has to fit!

The three of us have worked well together ever since we were students. And it was always clear to us that architecture doesn’t stop at the doorstep.

Our concept of design and architecture is fun-packed and doesn’t shy away from the risk of innovative and unusual approaches!
