In the heart of the historical as well as modern flair of the West End of Berlin City is an eye-catchingly impressive new building: The Westlight. Its octagonal layout and its crystalline architecture showcase this building in a fascinating light when viewed from any angle. This new building provides a lot of space for companies, with a floor area of 19,500 m² – divided across 15 storeys and two basement levels. The Westlight has awarded LEED Gold certification for its ecological and innovative design.

In a harmonious blend of ultimate quality standards and design, our expanded metal ceilings and their unvisible substructure deliver conviction through their stylish as well as dynamic visual impact. Raft ceilings some of which are designed as cooling ceilings deliver an agreeable interior climate silently and without draughts.

Round ceiling elements define the style of the lift vestibules on all floors. A special highlight in the foyer is the mirror-finish on the visible side of the elements, capturing life in the foyer and continuously redefining that interior space.

This combination of outstanding everyday utility and a design in perfect tune with the times, The Westlight is a visually striking architectural highlight in the West End of Berlin, 'City-West'.
