About the project

Broadcasting and media production company RTL has relocated its Berlin-based audio units to a new location. Completed in January 2021, the RTL Audio Center Berlin was designed by Swiss architecture studio Evolution Design.

Inspired by the energy of the music industry, interiors deliver an inspirational journey across the worlds of radio and news production, entertainment, and events. Berlin, too, plays an important role in the concept, with interiors referencing the gritty, hip nature of the city.

The overall aim of the project was to rethink radio and audio production and to design a technologically advanced hub with interiors that motivate and inspire media workers and visitors alike. The move also consolidates the operation of four radio stations and several media production companies into one space.

Interiors reflect user journeys through the space. The reception is the first point of entry and the most public area. It is designed to surprise and impress visitors and to give an insight into the workings of a radio station. The rock-shaped reception desk is decorated with microphone lights and vertical baffles lit in the form of a soundwave. Facing the reception is the Wall of Fame – an impressive display of RTL’s golden records and awards.

The visitor’s lounge has been styled as an interactive experience: a faux brick wall, inspired by Pink Floyd’s album The Wall, accommodates media screens and features more of RTL’s award trophies. Another glazed and fully transparent wall reveals the IT server room, which has been artfully lit to transform it into a Striking visual feature. The heart of the social life in the office is the loft-inspired hub – a semi-public space that encourages employees, guests and music stars to get together, socialize and entertain. It comes complete with a professionally equipped stage that enables RTL to organiZe in-house concerts with German music stars.
