Frankfurt Skyscraper Building – 18 Jul 2012
Germany’s fourth-highest office building – marks the gateway to the new Europa district in Frankfurt am Main and adds a new dimension to the city’s silhouette. The Tower 185 ensemble is made up of two main components: the perimeter block and the tower itself. The style of the perimeter block takes its cue from the urban framework of this European city and forms the layout at street level. The levels, materials and colours of the neighbouring buildings – beige stone walls and slate roofs – have been reflected in the new development.
