New Heights for Frankfurt

Acclaimed architect Ole Schereen’s latest project involves the dramatic transformation of a concrete building into a striking high-rise.

The project, Riverpark Tower, aims to set a new standard of urban living in Frankfurt, Germany, by replacing smaller buildings with high-density, high-impact towers. Riverpark Tower, located on the banks of the Main river, uses dynamic layering and sculpting to appear almost transparent.

Throughout the free-standing concrete structure of the vertical tower, large horizontal gaps offering panoramic views break up the tower and create a ‘bubbling’ effect, dramatically contrasting with the city’s skyline.

‘This ambitious project presents a convincing example for high-quality living in a high-rise in Germany,’ explains the architecture firm, ‘By transforming a hermetically enclosed office tower from the 70s into an open, light-flooded residential experience, we demonstrate that the intelligent and sustainable reuse of an existing building can enrich the quality of life — not only in the building itself but also for its context and urban life beyond. Riverpark Tower will come to stand as a beacon for the future of Frankfurt.’

The tower will house 220 units on 23 floors, reaching just under 100 meters tall, with every unit designed to offer stylish, comfortable modern living, from small business apartments to 4 room suites.
