Every morning, our office’s black garage gate automatically pulls upward. With a loud rattle, it gives a free view into our working space: the Garage 664.
Garage 664 is the open space that Friedrich Naumann Foundation offers for individuals and groups who are seeking innovation, creativity and exchange of ideas. This is the place where FREEDOM can be expressed in so many forms.
Our blue and monumental F stands at the entrance. Just next to it is our conference room. Newly equipped with a black metallic industrial-design conference table where strategic and creative decisions float around. Going back to the entrance, the red tubes on the ceiling lead you to our working isle which drops down from the ceiling. Here, the action takes place, it’s the place projects come to life. The surface of the isle is made of smashed glass symbolizing braking theory into practice. On the beginning our executive administrator dwells and on the far end our accountant numerate.
Opposite of our working space stands firm the kitchen, an open space that offers food for both stomach and thought. At the end of the big main room is the office of Dirk Kunze, our Head of Office. From his desk, you can have a vast gaze to the whole office until the main entrance. Outside, blooms a rich exotic garden of Banana trees and Gardenia, what a one good serene view!
The colour shades of our office are mainly black and grey. Whereby the dominating colours are interrupted by a yellow and a red buzz. These embellishments create an atmosphere of a start-up hub. A hub, where constructive political solutions are researched and the free-spirit of optimism lives on.
