SC263 is a minimal interior located in Berlin, Germany, designed by Iwetta Ullenboom. The new office of the young fashion label LeGer is located in a 19th century factory building in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg district. Characterized by its high ceilings and industrial appearance, the former printing house has recently been fully renovated and houses multiple offices and apartments. Iwetta Ullenboom has transformed the functional loft into a warm, welcoming workspace with an informal and homelike atmosphere. Through a careful selection of materials and a subtle color palette, the interior designer has created a calm environment for the creative team that is conducive to conversation and exchanging ideas. The brand, which at the point of opening focused exclusively on women’s fashion, creates pieces that are casual and feminine with a sense of boldness and elegance. The inspiration for the design concept was to translate those attributes into the interior of the space.
A soft and generous impression has been achieved in the spacious lobby area, where imposing curtains fold from one side of the space to the other – creating a tactile background and giving a warm welcome to everyone who enters the space. The theme of sweeping curtains continues throughout all further rooms, improving the acoustics of the space and gently filtering the natural light in the bright loft. In order to create a strong brand identity within the office, the designer decided to make certain bespoke furniture pieces, like the organic- shaped pedestals and rounded conference tables. The curvaceous geometries of the furniture and soft fabrics contrast with the strict grid of glass walls. The material combination of elegant moor oak, lush bouclé upholstery and contrasting powder coated steel creates a harmonious mix that is both laid-back and refined.
