Say hello to
Ruby Carl

A workspace you can bank on

Get to know Carl

Whether you need a desk for a day, a stylish spot to meet a client, a short-term office for an international project or space to launch your start-up, there’s a workspace for you at Ruby Carl.

Split over two levels in a bright, modern atrium, you’ll find hot desks, co-working tables, private offices and spacious meeting rooms, along with comfy sofas for informal catch-ups.

Blending home comforts with professional polish, every space is intuitively designed. Just grab a coffee, connect to the highspeed WiFi and go.

And with our flexible membership options, there’s no big commitment or upfront costs. Drop in for a change of scene or set up for a while. Whatever works for you.

Strolling between the grand, stone façades of Breite Strasse, it’s easy to imagine the area once teeming with titans of Rhenish industry.


Carlstadt, from which Ruby Carl takes his name, began to spring up in the 1850s – a lively, commercial cousin to Dusseldorf’s sleepy Altstadt.

With the arrival of the railways, business was booming, and all those captains of commerce needed somewhere to stash their cash. The banking district was born.

Built in 1904, the building that Carl calls home boasts all the grandeur of those early banks. High ceilings and big, arched windows make for a light, airy space, while dark wood, marble finishes and antique brass fittings add old-world ambience.

Flex & Dedicated Desks

Working solo or just fancy an escape from the office?

Pick a Flex Desk on the day or settle in at a Dedicated Desk with lockable storage.

Both options include free highspeed WiFi and 24-hour access, along with a printing and meeting room hire allowance. We’ll even look after your mail.


Private Offices

Whether you’re a team of two or ten, Private Offices offer a dedicated space to make your own.

As well as secure storage inside the office, you’ll get a digital door key to keep everything safe and sound.

Use Carl as your company address, add your logo at the entrance and enjoy two hours’ free meeting room bookings per person per month.


Meetings and Events

Our four sound-proof meeting rooms can host up to 18 people each, with all the cutting-edge tech and connectivity you’d expect.

For bigger get togethers, workshops and parties for our Members, there are two well-equipped event rooms, or the social space can be hired after-hours.



When it’s time for a breather, make a break for the social space. There, you’ll find free barista coffee and organic tea, along with a fully equipped kitchen to whip up some lunch.

It’s also where we host our after-work events. From readings and workshops to chilled-out mingles, they’re a great way to unwind, and you never know who you might meet.

Safe, Sound & Sparkling

We take your safety seriously, so we’re being even more careful than usual with our cleaning and measures on-site. We’ve also made a few other changes, to help keep everyone healthy and happy.

  • Tenants should keep sufficient safety distance (at least 1.5m) from other people.
  • We recommend to wear mouth-nose protection out of consideration to the community. 
  • Dispensers with disinfectant are available in the public area.
  • All surfaces and handles in the public areas are cleaned and disinfected more regularly than usual.
  • Disinfection wipes are available at the coffee machine and should be used before and after each use of the sieve holders.
  • Only a maximum of every second chair should be used at the tables in the public areas and in the meeting rooms, so that a distance of at least 1.5m to the neighbour is guaranteed.
  • The WCs are disinfected even more extensively. Dispensers with disinfectant are also available here.
