The Red Bull music studio in Berlin respectively preserves the majestic dynamic of the iconic Bauhaus movement. The site is of great historic importance as it was previously a broadcasting center for the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Widely known as the 'Funkhaus,' the building was built in the 1950s and thus, subscribed to the dominant architectural movement — Bauhaus.
Local design studio New Tendency was commissioned to overhaul and update the structure, without interfering too much with the iconic style. The Red Bull music studio required spaces for relaxation and work that included a lecture theatre and multiple recording facilities. These areas needed to promote a collaborative environment, as well as offer areas of privacy, for the participants in the annual Red Bull Music Academy.
