The

Brothel

Berlin
Interior Design

A Berlin-based company developed software to meet the requirements placed on brothels in accordance with a new law for the protection of sex workers that went into effect in Germany in 2018. The company equipped one of the city’s oldest active brothels with their product and sponsored a renovation, making it a model workplace for sex workers. Together with the women who worked there, we developed a spatial concept that also includes a new staff room exclusively for the women – decorated all in pink – that was designed according to their wishes. The various rooms have different atmospheres depending on their use. Five working rooms are equipped with custom-built beds that provide different levels for different sex practices. The entire renovation process had to be completed in just 10 days. All of the furniture components were prefabricated in advance.
