RTL Audio Center

The RTL’s Audio Center in Berlin is not only the most technologically advanced audio production centre in Europe, but it also stands out for its award-winning interior and lighting design. The project won three awards: 

  • The European Property Awards – Best Office Interior in Germany
  • Der Deutsche Lichtdesign-Preis – Winner
  • A’Design Award & Competition – Interior Space category – Silver Award

«Our client’s vision was to re-think the radio and audio production and create a hub that is technologically advanced, comfortable and fosters creativity among the radio production teams. These are people who frequently work anti-social hours and are expected to convey energy and creativity to their audiences. Our creative team went above and beyond in delivering interiors that embody the energy of the music industry, while references to Berlin’s edgy urban vibe further enhance the centre’s unique identity,» says Tanya Ruegg, partner and creative director of Evolution Design.
