BATEK ARCHITEKTEN completes renovation of the historic Yorck Kino Passage cinema in Berlin

With their signature sensitivity towards existing spaces, BATEK ARCHITEKTEN have brought new allure to the foyer and two smaller auditoriums of the Passage cinema through a series of precise interventions. This has allowed the historic aura of the hundred-year-old building in Neukölln to unfold in new ways yet simultaneously fulfill the functional and aesthetic requirements for a visit to a contemporary cinema.



Arthouse cinema in a new splendor: BATEK ARCHITEKTEN complete the refurbishment of the historic Yorck cinema Blauer Stern in Berlin

With a sensitive approach to existing spaces that is typical of the Berlin architectural office, BATEK ARCHITEKTEN have adapted the Blauer Stern – for the first time a cinema venue since 1933 – to the requirements of today’s cinema operations with the help of carefully targeted interventions. The resulting spatial concept is stringently thought out, colorful as well as functional, and creates a striking framework for the cinematic experience.



Contemporary living: a loft conversion with a difference in Berlin

The industrial loft has a reputation as a bachelor-pad dream thanks to its generosity of space
and historical charm. But with their renovation of this 240-square-metre former factory space
in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district, BATEK ARCHITEKTEN have shown that loft life can also suit a family
of five as well. Known for its functional, consistently thought-through and future oriented spatial
concepts, the Berlin-based architecture office proves once again with the conversion of this
historical loft its sensitive approach to existing spaces and their character.



BATEK ARCHITEKTEN complete interior design of VAAY flagship store in Berlin

The VAAY Flagship Store in Berlin is BATEK ARCHITEKTEN’s second commission for the brand.
As with their VAAY Pop-up Store, which is also in Berlin, this primary outlet is all about creating
a framework for the brand experience using just a few, well placed elements. VAAY’s business
is selling health and lifestyle products based on CBD, which is a legal, active ingredient of
the hemp plant. Known for its functional, consistently thought-through and future oriented
spatial concepts of private and public interiors, the Berlin-based architecture office proves
once again its innovative approach to retail design.



A new building element in Berlin: residential house by BATEK ARCHITEKTEN

The architecture office BATEK ARCHITEKTEN has completed a future-oriented new building for Berlin’s centrally located district Mitte. Architecture and interior design of the formally restraint yet spatially cleverly organized townhouse are by the Berlin-based architecture office. The new build containing two residential units fills a vacant plot against a fire wall in a typical Berlin courtyard. With the project RHE42 BATEK ARCHITEKTEN has created a high-quality living space within a small area in the middle of the city. Upward tapering cubes, stacked upon each other make up the distinct typology of the townhouse, which is a good example of contemporary urban densification. In addition to the architecture, also the interior design of RHE42 underlines the functional and consistently thought-through approach to spatial concepts by BATEK ARCHITEKTEN.
