A new face is created for Goethe-Institut in Moscow: the modern, open and international image of Goethe-Institut is applied to the ex-GDR-embassy building through a redesign concept. The features of the concept create a second layer in the existing unhomogenous interiors, a layer that uni es the space and puts it in a new perspective – without intruding into the existing structure. An internal navigation system helps with orientation in the complex building and brings the Goethe-Corporate-Idetity out. By introducing the Goethe-Institut‘s corporate colors and font the spacial atmosphere of the interiors becomes bright and inviting.
