Porsche Design Tower Frankfurt

The Porsche Design Tower stands at the beginning of the new Boulevard Mitte in Frankfurt/Main, the new development of Europaviertel West on the site of the former shunting yard. The design provides three succinct functional areas in the 80 m high building: the plinth with a semi-public area, the privately used Porsche Design residential tower, and the Porsche Design suites. All residential areas are oriented towards the west. The plan is to design the apartments to be as unique as their future inhabitants – with their modular structure, a maximum of flexibility can be achieved within the different layouts. By sliding individual apartments out, firstly the individuality of the residents is emphasised in the form of the building, and secondly, windows can be provided for a view to the south. Towards the top of the building, these newly created loggias make way to wind-protected conservatories.

The design of the facade is differentiated and functional: as a glass facade, it presents a smooth surface towards the city but more crystal-shaped structures towards the park. By breaking up the smooth facade, an interesting texture is created that becomes calmer with increasing height. A differentiation in the colour of the glass, ranging from anthracite to a transparent shade, creates visual protection that is relaxed with increasing height and reinforces the interplay with the environment.
