New design curtains in the Berlin BUFA studios "Atelier Gardens TON 1"

In Berlin-Tempelhof, the world-famous BUFA Studios (Berliner Union Film Studios) in Oberlandstraße, founded in 1912, are currently being remodelled and GERRIETS is involved on behalf of its partner company MKT. In addition to the traditional theme of film studios, for which the BUFA Studios have stood since 1912, event areas are currently being created for multifunctional use. In addition to these conversions, the outdoor area is also being completely remodelled, with a preference for unsealing areas. This new exterior design gives the overall project the name "Atelier Garden".

The largest remodelling work took place in Studio 1. And here Gerriets was able to plan, manufacture and install exciting curtain constructions with even more exciting track layouts for its partner MKT Engeneering from Berlin. The design was created by the Dutch architecture firm MVRDV, which also has a branch in Berlin. MVRDV designed and realised a space with highly flexible, multi-functional, complex Gerriets track systems with intricate courses and elaborately crafted designer curtains, all made by Gerriets. This artistic curtain installation, together with a 200 metre long LED system from MKTengennering, is the creative focal point of the entire installation.
