New office for De Zwarte Hond Cologne
This year it is exactly 10 years since De Zwarte Hond opened a branch in Cologne. Our assignments in Germany are becoming increasingly challenging and extensive. The agency has now grown into a player with both visibility and a reputation in Germany, which means that the number of employees has increased and that we have outgrown our home.
As of September 2021 therefore, the agency has moved to a new location in the city. The new and larger location in the middle of the city centre, an old bank building, fits perfectly with the positive development of the office in Cologne. Due to the shallow depth of the block, the 260 m² ground floor office has two façades: one overlooking the castle walls and the Cologne City Museum and the other on Elisenstrasse, a low-traffic street.
An impressive feature of the office is the cluster of eight skylights in the centre of the space, which allow natural light to flood into the building. The steel-and-concrete aesthetic, together with the open floor plan, gives the studio an industrial character. Part of the space offers possibilities for organising meetings and events.
We wish all our colleagues in Cologne good luck and happy times in their new working environment!
