General planning for an office building with retail, a café and exhibition space in downtown Frankfurt

  • Client: Degussa Gold + GbR Kettenhofweg 27
  • Timeframe: 2014 - 2018
  • GFA: 2,923 sqm
  • Use: Office / Administration, Culture / Education

The office building in downtown Frankfurt designed by AS+P consists of two basement floors and six stories above ground over a total of some 3,000 m² of gross floor area (GFA). Alongside stories for offices the building also boasts exhibition and retail space on the ground floor.

To the west, a glazed walkway connects the new office building with the neighboring late neoclassical villa housing a café and exhibition space. The transparent connecting passage is set slightly back, separating the area between the two buildings from the street and creating a green inner courtyard.

The façade of the existing building is being modernized in line with its heritage status. The new building has been designed with a light natural stone façade. The new build is scheduled for completion in spring 2018.
