CORE SE opens new location in Berlin at E-Werk
Berlin, May 2019 – Berlin-based Technology Think Tank CORE SE, traditionally based in the historic Villa Schwabacher at Wannsee since its foundation in 2010, will open its second location in Berlin in the E-Werk in Mauerstraße on May 1st. CORE SE is continuing to pursue its Berliner location strategy of obtaining historically and architecturally significant buildings.
Originally known as the Buchhändlerhof transformer station, the E-Werk was built between 1924 and 1928 according to the plans of architect Hans Heinrich Müller. After the fall of the Iron Curtain between 1993 and 1998, E-Werk became one of the most influential venues for national and international techno events. After its closure as a techno club, the E-Werk was renovated at the beginning of the century by the Berlin architecture firm HSH and reopened in 2005 as an event venue and office building.
Holger Friedrich, CEO of CORE SE: "The acquisition of Berliner E-Werk is of central importance for CORE SE. As a further location in Berlin, the building initially offers us sufficient capacity for the dynamic growth of our company. Due to its special architecture, history and location, the E-Werk is also a place where we can optimally unfold our creativity and innovative power as a Tech Think Tank."
