Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Berlin, Germany

  • project Ministry of Foreign Affairs
  • architect Thomas Müller and Ivan Reimann, Berlin
  • lighting designer LichtKunstLicht, Bonn

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs consists of two building complexes, an old building, and a new building. The new building with its inviting, open architecture and courtyards that open out onto the city - and hence the general public - is particularly impressive to behold. Since the start of 2000, this building has accommodated 770 workers in approx. 700 offices that offer interesting views according to their position - of the Werderscher Markt, the library courtyard or the inner courtyard lawns. Located opposite the old Foreign Office building, the building opens out onto a reception courtyard, which is used to host prestigious events. The primary goal of the lighting concept here was to emphasize the building structure and illuminate this accordingly – particularly at night time.

  • This luminaire can be used wherever safe light is essential. For instance in local-distance and long-distance transport zones, stations and bus stops, waiting rooms, multi-storey carparks, public squares and subways, bridges or laboratories, sports grounds or correctional facilities. They are available as flush-mounted or surface-mounted luminaires with four different diffusers for all applications and high protection requirements IK09 or IK10 and IP65. Additional power supply or data cables can be installed on the media carriers, enabling inconspicuous routing of cables and tubes even across several levels.
