Intermediate Engineering

We are an engineering office for consulting, conception and implementation of innovative development and media projects located in the heart of Hamburg, Germany.

Once started as a pure media technology office, our team now unites specialists from a wide range of disciplines. We close the gap between designers, creatives and technicians and combine interactive media with electronics, mechanics, optics and mechanical engineering.

We use technology to inspire, arouse curiosity and provoke emotions.

When working with our clients, the focus lies on personal and individual consultation. We create clarity for diffuse ideas. In doing so we score through our years of experience and our way of thinking “outside of the box”.

Our Projects

As an engineering firm, we can look back on many years of experience in the implementation of complex media and development projects. Due to their diversity, our projects can be organized into several subcategories and range from pure software development to complex media technology installations and hardware development.

Our Services

Our projects and products enchant; the end users, our clients and even ourselves. For many of our clients who come to us with an idea, the result is something magical, usually far beyond their original expectations. But behind every magic there is a lot of structure, know-how and experience. And, of course, a trick that a real magician would never reveal, but which we as an engineering company are happy to share: Our interdisciplinary service portfolio, which goes far beyond the existing standards of classical media technology. The combination of our expertise in the individual areas is our ace up our sleeve.
