ARCHITECTURE

THAT INSPIRES

T H E T O P L O C AT I O N

I N T H E C E N T R E O F B E R L I N

Italian architect Renzo Piano has developed the master plan for the entire Potsdamer Platz quarter in Berlin. Based on this plan, he and other international star architects like Prof. Hans Kollhoff or Sir Richard Rogers have created visionary buildings that are an impressive testimony to the transition to the 21st century. The Forum Tower is Renzo Piano‘s personal interpretation of the vision of a cosmopolitan and trendset-ting architecture. The skyscraper is a prominent landmark of the new downtown: a true masterpiece of modern building design in a supreme location.

Elegant and precise like the needle of a compass, the Forum Tower with its glass spire points to the pulsating heart of the metropolis. With the neighbouring high-rise at Potsdamer Platz 1, designed by Prof. Hans Kollhoff, it forms the gateway to the quarter.

Already in the ancient world, a forum used to be the monumental hub of a city‘s economic and social life; similarly, the Forum Tower plays an outstanding role today in Berlin‘s business world as a representative centre for companies who want to convey their high status through the address of their headquarters.

ForumTower The Quality

The Forum Tower is a highly prestigious building that features high-quality interior spaces and an inviting atmosphere. Transparency and light, cool glass surfaces and warm terracotta tones,

well- balanced proportions, and lean shapes characterize the architecture‘s aesthetics and atmosphere. The clarity of Renzo Piano‘s architectural language continues into the impressive foyer. Located in the immediate vicinity of Potsdamer Platz with its outstanding infrastructure, the neighbourhood is bustling with life and variety – offering the perfect combination of work-life balance with a cosmopolitan flair.

The Forum Tower offers demanding international tenants generously proportioned modern office spaces in premium quality on 18 floors. The offices are finished with high-quality materials and numerous comfortable details. The attractive quality of the space, and the inspiring surroundings make for an excellent office atmosphere. In conformity with the quarter‘s green philosophy, there are no air conditioning systems: The Forum Tower‘s double-skin glass façade provides natural and energy efficient air conditioning. Also in terms of its interior finishing the Forum Tower occupies a leading position.

Generous dimensions, clear structures, and a flexible office configuration allow for customized room layouts: classic individual offices, practical hybrid solutions, or communicative open-plan offices and innovative multi-space concepts with a variety of office configurations – these are all feasible layout concepts. Elegant conference spaces and meeting rooms featuring high-quality finishings complement the profession-al work environment.
