We spent most of 2018 reimagining what betahaus could be. Without the limitations of our original building, we had the chance to envision an entirely new space that still feels like ours.
We went to viewings all across Berlin trying to find a flexible location that was big enough for our community and cool enough to replace the house where we got our start. Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23 looked like home from the minute we walked inside, with hidden hallways and a rooftop terrace; what we didn’t quite expect was that we’d find two spaces that we really loved.
Our chance came up to open a second space in Berlin, so we're taking it! At the beginning of 2019, we'll open betahaus | Neukölln for coworking and events and we're pretty damn excited about it.
betahaus | Neukölln will be located at Harzer Straße 39 in the Geyer-Werke building. The space is spread across six floors and will be divided up into coworking areas, makers workshops, studios, event spaces, and tons of team rooms. You’ll have access to a courtyard with a garden and a pond where you can take a break during the workday. And in case you’re wondering, we're working on a membership perk where you could work from either of our locations with just one membership.
“Rudi-Dutschke-Straße 23 will continue to be our HQ, while our space at Harzer Straße 39 will be about reconnecting with the makers and freelancers that made Berlin awesome in the first place,” says betahaus Co-Founder Christoph Fahle. “We chose the building in Neukölln because it is a super awesome historical site in an up-and-coming neighborhood. There is not much coworking in Neukölln yet, so we hope to contribute to the general infrastructure and build a space where there is nothing else so far.”
What do you think of our newest location? We're hosting a dedicated betabreakfast on 1 November where we’ll be looking at plans for the space (9:30am) before we head over to the new building for a tour (11:30am).
In the meantime, you can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by our Front Desk with questions. We can't wait to share our ideas and get your input on this new location while everything is still in progress. Until then!
