The 3 parts of breathing

At my family reunion the other day, I got talking to my cousin Susanne. She does language training for actors and I was curious to know what that entailed. She said that the foundation of a good performance on stage was always breathing, and asked me what this involved. I was a little taken aback, because to me, the answer is obviously breathing in and breathing out.

Whilst she said that this was of course true, she also said that the most important part of breathing was when you pause. I was amazed, and realised: pauses are something we all need. Not just when we’re breathing, but also when we need an important break before we start something new.”

New ideas don’t fall from the sky, but the uninhibited view here can help to develop them. BEAM offers recreational areas for breaks – with a spacious rooftop terrace, light-flooded atriums and leafy inner courtyards that form the green lungs of the building, giving you space to breathe.

But that’s not all. You can also relax in the many green spaces all within walking distance, and on the banks of the Spree River directly opposite.
