General

When renting Pure Pause you don’t get a traditional location but a space for defining and realizing more opportunities. Space, equipment, catering and hospitality create an unique mix which assists you in building bridges into doing and to develop new ideas.

The concept of Pure Pause is support people to set themselves into motion. To clarify to together what is important to make the next steps. You will find everything needed for innovative working. Groups decide first what should become possible here and set up the space and its furnishings accordingly. All get moving and help set things up. That puts everyone into action … and the transfer to the actual subject matter is facilitated in a big way.

Together with the host which is there for you throughout the entire duration of your event the Pure Pause approach creates proximity among people, heightens the quality level of interaction and injects a healthy dose of liveliness. Sustainable impact of workshops is our communal support.

For any kind of event focused on developing ideas, plans and projects with tangible progress in mind. Simply for everything that has to do with change and innovation. Our clients may develop a new strategy here, remodel a process and reflect on how they will operate their business differently in the future. At Pure Pause, teams work to get clarity on what and how exactly something will go differently in the future.

Groups are undertaking leaps into the future and together they investigate what is necessary to pave the way forward. Intensive exchange around topics at hand and the visualization of possible variants with the existing materials facilitates deep contemplation on site.

At Pure Pause, the type of communication, in word and image, is created simultaneously which leads and accompanies folks along new paths. During the workshop and beyond – in everyday work thereafter. Supported by the inviting, exciting ambiance and tasty Berlin treats in between.

Pure Pause is also ideal for interactive workshops and well-known formats such as Design Thinking, Google Design Sprints or Lego Serious Play. Or for special corporate events with innovative impact requirements, such as product presentations, pop-ups and evening events.

While traditional seating arrangements or the like can be easily implemented this does not fully exploit the potential of the room. We are happy to show you what is possible here and support you throughout the preparations and implementations of what best benefits your cause.

Pure Pause is about taking a break from the way you normally work. It is therefore about an active break from the everyday work routines with a lot of proximity to peers, quality of interaction and a healthy dose of liveliness.

A break is always an opportunity to rethink our actions, to develop new ideas and to allow us to mature – to immerse ourselves in what we generally call different. A break to initiate new things, to see the old with new eyes. Actively creating proximity where there is too much distance, raising the quality level of our interactions and injecting a good portion of liveliness.

The holistic concept of Pure Pause.

Pure Pause was created in 2014 – as a result of the experience findings of our sister company Impact Circles.

Impact Circles is a consulting company for innovative corporate cultures that specializes in interactive group formats dealing with future topics in a relevant fashion.

An enabling setting for change and innovation projects is not only indispensable but also crucial for the speed and effectiveness of such activities. Typical spaces in corporate office and meeting environments, hotels and other offsite locations did not meet this prerequisite.

Pure Pause offers 150 sqm of space divided into two rooms through two large wing doors. The large room has about 100 sqm. In the rear part, there is a wardrobe, luggage space and 2 toilets.

The smaller room offers additional space for active use on approx. 50 sqm and serves as a possible catering area.

You always rent Pure Pause as a single user and never share our space with anyone else.

Yes, during the entire time of the booked event, one of our team members is on site: as support for spontaneously emerging questions about anything techie, how to best handle our modular furniture and use creative materials. We are your host, handle the catering service and also act as the go-to person for any other wish, concern or question you may have.

Through the cooperation with our sister company Impact Circles, all team members are also fit in various methods for change & innovation. Maybe you want to exchange ideas in advance to make the most of the possibilities at Pure Pause…

This way you can concentrate with utmost ease on your event.

We are looking forward to meeting you! Please write or call to find a suitable day and time. Pure Pause doesn’t have regular operating hours.

We recommend previewing our location prior to a booking. Based on the many possibilities to explore at Pure Pause it’s our experience that a prior visit adds value to the pending event.

For your workshop design it may be interesting to see all the working materials we have available. We are equipped way beyond the usual and we are happy to show you how things can be used to support your mission.

Yes, we carefully selected this location based on its different and symbolic characteristics. We placed an unusually designed and high quality equipped space in the middle of a mixed urban Berlin neighborhood.

Pure Pause is located on the street level of a historic building that used to serve the union of German book printers – created from 1924-26 by Max Tauth. The contributions of this architect comprise the development of framing which allowed for a room to be free of pillars – it symbolized the beginning of a new openness in interior design.

Directly at the border of two neighborhoods – Kreuzberg on the one side of the street and across already Tempelhof. Close to the same name airport which fed the population in the American sector after the second world war by ways of the legendary ir bridge. Its building remains one of the largest connected structures in Europe today. The runway and grass areas are used for leisure activities, nature relaxation and a meeting point for people and cultures. A consequence of the people’s choice in order to celebrate quality of urban life.

Typical and repetitive situations of everyday work life such as introduction rounds, idea generation & selection, building bridges into doing and good story-telling all need fresh approaches and effective methodology in order to excite and engage people. How do you go about renewing things in an invigorating and activating fashion?

Plan an incentive event to show employee appreciation at Pure Pause. We show new approaches and playful ways to created motion and movement around projects of change and innovation. This benefits the working culture and the aptitude for innovation of any business.
