Mr Yildirim, what motivated you to fit out the Brooklyn Burgermeister bar?
Aydin Yildirim: For me, the central location on Europa-Allee was crucial, as this is a booming and extremely lively district. It’s close to the main train station, there’s a lot of pedestrian traffic. It’s simply a good location with excellent combination options. Here, I’m thinking of the Ristorante/Pizzeria Cucina next door, which I have owned for two years. My experience of the location was certainly also a factor. The purchase also turned out to be a favourable opportunity.
What did you find important for the interior design?
For me, the interior design had to be timeless, but also clever with regard to how it is used. There were quite a few conceivable concepts, various trends which could have applied. For me, it was important to show a high quality and create a unique ambience for visitors.
What makes the Brooklyn Burgermeister bar a good experience for the guests?
The Brooklyn Burgermeister bar appeals to all ages. The space is informal and features varied furniture, and the exciting atmosphere and great sound are very inviting. We serve homemade burgers of an excellent quality with Swiss products, and we have 20 types of beer – these are also all Swiss products.
What was the biggest challenge during the realisation?
That was the official requirements and all the delays that those caused. Of course, I always asked myself whether it was really the right concept.
How did you find the cooperation with Glaeser Projekt AG?
Glaeser Projekt AG was familiar with the demands for high quality. This is the result of good experiences in other projects. I also really enjoyed the good communication, which was crucial for the result.
