From September 2020, Berlin will have one more cultural attraction. The Humboldt Forum is currently under construction on Schlossplatz, in the Mitte district - a museum that will become a unique place to experience, learn and meet.
Embedded in the premises of the rebuilt Berlin Palace, visitors to an area of 30,000 m² are encouraged to gain new insights into the world of yesterday, today and tomorrow as part of archaeological, ethnological and art historical exhibitions and events. The Humboldt Forum is inspired by its namesake Alexander and Wilhelm von Humboldt and their joy in traveling and exploring the world with open eyes and understanding it as an intertwined system of nature and culture.
The surface void floor by Knauf Integral was installed in a large part of the property. 'GIFAfloor FHB' opens up the perfect solution for large rooms that are heavily used. By gluing the 1200 x 600 mm or 600 x 600 mm, non-flammable elements in tongue and groove and assembling them on individually adjustable supports, an absolutely flat floor surface is created. This is characterized by high load capacity, freedom of installation in the cavity and the absorption of additional loads, such as drywall. Compared to raised floors, the 'GIFAfloor FHB' hollow floor can be planned with a significantly lower construction height thanks to its high load distribution. This creates an ideal and sound-absorbing surface for any type of floor covering - whether parquet, elegant stone floor or noise-absorbing carpeting. Depending on the given room geometry, areas of up to 15 x 15 m can be executed seamlessly according to the manufacturer's specifications. ”Due to the high installation rate, the associated quick construction, the high flexibility and the extraordinary load-bearing capacity," GIFAfloor FHB "is often the first choice for architects.
