Hotel- and office high rise at Güterplatz, 2017

On the basis of the master plan the project tries to blend in naturally as a part of the Frankfurt skyline. The existing urban design concept was respected and taken up for the tower at – both the building massing and the height of the tower are coherent urban statements. The project is reserved with regard to the configuration of the building massing in order to unfold its separate identity expressively on the façade. The outstanding location is taken into consideration with the design of a sculpture that the observer will keep in memory because of its geometry and especially because of its distinctive crystalline structure. The different uses – hotel and offices – ask for an appropriate disposition. A visible stacking of functions would contradict the vertical elegance. Instead, a continuous superordinate façade design is developped that comes up to the significance of the building.
