Hines German HQ

At the point where Beate-Uhse-Haus once embodied the impending fading of West Berlin, Hines initiated a new spirit of optimism with the construction of the ZOOM office and commercial building. At this location has Hines, one of the largest international real estate developers, established its German headquarters.

Hines and Kinzo have successfully collaborated in the past, on the Zukunftswohnquartier Südkreuz: an urban community with a diverse program. From the guest suites to the coworking space, from the gym to the laundromat, the roof garden to the daycare center, the bicycle parking lot to the e-car charging station are combined here for an urban community. It was only natural for Hines and Kinzo to collaborate again, this time to translate Hines’ high standard of design and unique identity into a company headquarter.

Thanks to Kinzo‘s interior architecture consulting and planning services, communication among employees has improved. Corporate culture has significantly improved within the high-quality work environment, which is symbolic of Hines’ reputation as a modern big player in the real estate sector.

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!
