Special Effects with Lighting
In the Bundesrat Building in Berlin, lighting elements with “Conturax” profile rods enhance stylish surroundings with pleasant lighting.
The building in Leipziger Strasse, Berlin, has had an eventful history. Built between 1899 and 1904 as the seat of the first chamber of the Prussian Landtag (parliament) in the style of a baroque nobleman’s palace, its subsequent occupants included the East German Academy of Sciences. Since summer 2000 the former Prussian manor house has been the seat of the Bundesrat or upper house of the German parliament.
In September 1996 the Bundesrat decided to move its headquarters from Bonn to Berlin. In the four years leading up to the move, the building had to be adapted to suit the requirements of modern parliamentary work. The architects, Schweger & Partner from Hamburg, achieved this without any major changes to the basic structure of the historic building. One special challenge turned out to be the lighting system, which had to be harmonized with the historic architecture of the building.
