as we told you in our last post, we want to introduce you to a new category on the blog, named after our second and new instagram account: designtales. we want to share more about our passion for design and interior with you guys, so here is the first designtales post today, the long promised studio tour!
we moved into our new studio almost a year ago, it's crazy how time flies. as some of you might know, before we had our studio in the countryside, but it was just to small at some point and also not ideal that it was more than an hour-drive away from berlin. though i have to say that it really rescued us, since the first years of building up our own company have been so stressful. unbelievingly good, fun and rewarding, but also very stressful and filled with so much work. so working in the countryside was a very good start, because you always had such a calm surrounding in contrast to the busy work life.
but as we are mainly living in berlin it made sense to look for a studio which was closer to our home, so during summer 2015 we started to look for a studio in berlin. and we thought it would be so complicated and that we would never find what we are looking for as we had so many points that were important to us. the most important thing was to have at least one window towards north and that seemed to be enough to be looking for already. also we wanted the studio to be close to our flat and the height of the ceiling was important too, because of the tripod we wanted to buy. one day, when we had another viewing in quite a nice building (but the rooms where not ideal) i looked through its windows and could see another building, maybe only 500m away. the first thing i fell in love with were the windows :) they looked so beautiful, even from 500m distance. and the whole building looked so nice, neat, but still old and charming. a perfect mix. we just decided to pass by and ask the people, if there might be free spaces. we didn't had any hope though as from the outside it looked like every floor would be rented out. but i wasn't! the whole first floor was empty and not rennovated yet and the other renters were super friendly and helpful and provided us with a telephone number of the landlord.
