Colonia Nova is an event loft with a rooftop terrace in Berlin
We offer a lavish 400 sqm event loft, flooded with daylight, in the vibrant neighbourhood of Neukölln. This event space can be used for all sorts of events ranging from conferences to showrooms. The modular nature of the loft allows for a creative use of the space, also making it perfect for hosting multiple workshops simultaneously. Moreover, our 500 sqm rooftop terrace with its view over the south-side of Berlin, can be used as a break-out space during meetings or as an event location on itself.
Colonia Nova was founded in 2012 by Michael Haufe and Fares Al-Hassen. Their mission was to create a space where creatives can come together to work and inspire each other. By providing studios for all sorts of artists, and an event location where people have the opportunity to meet each other, a true creative hub was born.
In 2014 Colonia Nova moved to its current location in Berlin: a former factory building in the Thiemannstrasse in Neukölln. This building used to be the largest cash register factory in Europe during the first half of the 20th century. It’s great factory halls and rooftop now serve as an event location and as studios for professionals.
Now having an even bigger event space, the chance to host more diverse events became bigger as well. Still wanting Colonia Nova to be a place of exchange and creativity, the idea came to make the event loft modular. By creating a system of modular separating walls and large white curtains, the loft turned into a creative venue for all sort of events.
Over the years, many different events took place in the loft and many creatives, professionals and start-ups have found their way into the studios. Having diversity, creativity and exchange as its main values, Colonia Nova keeps striving to offer the best support and inspiration to its clients in the process of event management, as well as to the professionals working in the studios.
