With their move to the KörberForum in Hafencity at the beginning of August, a new stage in their foundation activity began for the Hamburg Körber-Stiftung. Kehrwieder 12, the foundation's new address with a view of the harbour, offers a lot of space for encounters on its five floors. After the planning and contract through the Hamburg furnishing specialist GÄRTNER, WINI, the office furniture manufacturer supplied the furnishing for the foundation's staff administration offices.
The Körber Foundation has around 3,500 square metres of office and useable floor space at their disposal at the Kehrwieder premises: a prestigious platform for the new "Forum for Impulses", which commits itself actively for social discourse in politics, education, science and international understanding. With Körber AG's move from Bergedorfer Werksgelände to the new heart of Hamburg, Hafencity, the foundation is, at the same time, seeking closer proximity to the general public. Thus, as well as discussion fora and symposia, a multitude of cultural events are intended to take place in future in the glass HafenKubus, which extends the clinker-bricked office complex with its own event location, seating 200 persons. In this way, the foundation sees itself more than ever as an open, transparent institution, open to all citizens.
