The Concept

Deutsche Bank’s Head office in Frankfurt, with its two towers has been transformed into a visible symbol for an energy efficient and high-quality working environment. In the context of Europe’s largest refurbishment one of the world’s most environment-friendly high-rise buildings has been created. Both towers of the building (40,000 sqm) and the foot (podium) of the building (11,000 sqm) are clad with a new breathing façade whilst almost retaining the original exterior appearance.


155 m / 509 ft

36 stories tall

The façades consist of individual units where every second window unit is a parallel vent window which can be opened. An innovative development in fittings allows the use of the windows also at high wind velocities and at heights of 150 m. A cold façade has been built around the individual units. 

The Project
Scope of Work

51,000 sqm (549,000 sq ft) of curtain wall refurbished with ultimate energy and ecological features whilst maintaining the original aesthetics.
