Let the music play on
The House of Music brings the former wheelset turnery back to life amidst the historic R.A.W. grounds, located in the music and scene district of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. In the middle of the legendary RAW grounds, new sounds and innovative business ideas are created - and are always changing.
The R.A.W. site represents a unique mix of jobs, recreational and cultural activities. The area is surrounded by numerous clubs, bars, studios, galleries and live venues - a magnet for people from all over the world who are creative or simply thirsty for culture.
The story began in 2001 in the basement of a back building on Warschauer Strasse in Friedrichshain: When noisy Rooms opened its first rehearsal rooms, the foundation was laid for noisy Musicworld, established in 2003. Since then, more than a million local and international musicians of all genres have taken advantage of the offer.
Today the company comprises seven separate service areas: noisy Rooms - rehearsal rooms, noisy Store - backline rental, noisy Academy - school for electronic music, noisy Live - music events, noisy Roads - tour bus rental and Jam School, the instrumental music school.
noisy Musicworld offers 23 rehearsal rooms in sound studio quality with first-class soundproofing in the House of Music - and all this for reasonable rates and conditions.
The British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM Institute Berlin) is one of the largest providers of contemporary music education in Europe and is the market leader in the UK. At the House of Music, the BIMM Institute Berlin offers around 550 Bachelor's study places in music production, music business, singing, songwriting, guitar, bass and drums as well as further education.
BIMM has offices in London, Berlin, Hamburg, Dublin, Brighton, Manchester, Bristol and Birmingham. Individual support, lecturers from the field and an international network are the secret behind the success.
Music Pool Berlin has been offering low-threshold consulting and qualification services since 2013 and regularly organizes community evenings. The publicly funded program supports around 3,000 female musicians in Berlin in their careers in the music industry.

The wheelset turnery in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg is one of the oldest industrial halls in Berlin. The largest building on the former “Reichsbahnausbesserungswerk” site (R.A.W.) opened in 1867 and was almost completely destroyed in World War II. Fortunately, however, the Reichsbahn rebuilt the halls and facilities in the 1960s. After the fall of the Berlin Wall and reunification, the Deutsche Bahn no longer had any use for the site and empty rooms and decay increased.
The infrastructure across the entire R.A.W. site fell into disrepair. It was not until the end of the 1990s that the creative scene revived the area, renovated buildings and created numerous places for art and culture. The wheel-set turnery, on the other hand, was left as an abandoned ruin all these years due to the extent of destruction. A vacant space that had consequences: The former German Reichsbahn building lacked a roof, most of the windows were knocked out and the ceilings had collapsed.
When the Kurth Immobilien Group acquired the wheelset turning shop in 2015, the idea for a conversion into the House of Music arose together with the Berlin company noisy Musicworld. In 2017, the conversion of the non-listed industrial building began, preserving the historic DNA and meeting high energy efficiency standards. The House of Music now has, among other things, a photovoltaic system and a rainwater storage tank that funnels into usable water. The House of Music will open in spring 2019 with 4,316 sqm of usable space across three floors. With noisy Musicworld and the British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM Berlin), the first tenants are filling the house with life.
