Sony Music Entertainment and Sony/ATV Music Publishing have opened a new, sprawling German and European headquarters in Berlin, the companies announced today (Oct. 6).
The seven-story, 86,000-square-foot office space has an interior designed by Studio Karhard, the same architects behind iconic Berlin music club Berghain. It brings under one roof Sony Music Germany, Switzerland and Austria; Sony's international classical music entities; its international team responsible for Continental Europe and Africa; and Sony/ATV Germany. The site will also support German and international artists and songwriters with an in-house recording studio and "music rooms" for playing and recording new songs.
"I am very excited to start a new chapter in Sony Music’s story within the vibrant city of Berlin, one of Europe’s key creative power hubs," said Sony Music president, Continental Europe & Africa Daniel Lieberberg. "We are committed to further empowering and supporting our artists fueled by a strong and dynamic team and an incredibly modern and inspiring new infrastructure."
