« In a prominent location » – this is how the FAZ headlines its report on our new building project in Frankfurt on page 30 (issue 19, October 2021). The article deals in detail with the location, which is important for the city center, between Biebergasse 6-10 and Börsenplatz, where the building is located directly vis-á-vis the traditional old stock exchange.
Author Rainer Scholz talked about the special challenge with architect Manfred Wenzel. Accordingly, the facade is designed in shape and color on both sides in such a way that it fits into the overall picture of the surroundings, but at the same time, with its well-proportioned, haptic modernity typical of TEK TO NIK architects, it refreshes the entire surrounding scenery and links it to the present. Rainer Scholz quotes Wenzel as saying, « The facades are all very strong there, the building should communicate with that. » Frankfurt residents will know how this is to be experienced in urban reality as early as fall 2023. By then, the building should already be ready for occupancy.
One day later, the Frankfurter Rundschau also reports the news with a large picture, short text and the allusive headline « Bieberbau ». Because what not all Frankfurt residents know anymore: On the site of the new building was for decades the hall building « Bieberbau ». This is where the people of Frankfurt went to the « Bieberbau » cinema from 1924 to 1965. You can read a little more about it here.
