Office worlds with a vintage look
The Munich-based Ruby Group is known for its design hotels and has also been offering high-quality workspaces since 2017. The locations in Hamburg and Düsseldorf were designed by brandherm + krumrey together with the Ruby design team as relaxed office environments. In line with the company’s Lean Luxury philosophy, these premises offer straightforward comfort with a boutique ambience and customised office packages. Fully equipped workstations can be flexibly booked for individual or team work. Digital nomads are just as welcome as start-ups or freelancers.
Ruby Hans in Hamburg is located between historical brick buildings and just a few minutes from the Speicherstadt ensemble and HafenCity. Inside the historical office building, a spacious coworking space has been created with a colourful mixture of armchairs and sofas for exchanging ideas. Natural wood, metal and leather surfaces characterise the casually elegant interior. Hand-picked antiques, designer furniture and decorative lamps create a feel-good ambience with a vintage look. In addition, a barista bar and community areas are available for socialising and events. Ruby Carl in Düsseldorf is also accommodated in a listed building. Centrally located near Königsallee, the Rheinisches Palais from 1909 has been transformed into a modern working environment. Its loft-like ambience reflects both the grand architecture of the old building and the high-quality standards of the Ruby Group. Large leather sofas, carpets and plants give the light-flooded interior a touch that is as classic as it is homely. Here, too, the central barista bar invites spontaneous exchange and networking. In addition, the spacious communal areas with a professional cooking island facilitate joint activities and events.
