On Goldsteinstraße in Frankfurt Niederrad, a vacant former dormitory from the year 1970 is being energetically renovated and revitalised into a modern residential complex with small, energy efficient apartments. On a living space of around 3,000 m², approx. 140 small apartments will be built. The property is connected to the local public transport, the international airport Frankfurt am Main as well as to the Frankfurt city centre. The red building façade and components form the address and create an urban and architectural identification point. The unsealing and vegetation of the area creates a balance between rainfall intake and drainage. A natural water cycle will get maintained.
