经评委会一致通过，UNStudio以“FOUR Frankfurt”项目胜出法兰克福德意志银行旧址建筑竞赛。HPP Architects与UNStudio将共同进行该项目的后续工程。这两家建筑设计公司均拥有深厚的大型项目和建筑综合体设计经验。为进一步加深对本土环境的了解，UNStudio还在法兰克福当地设立了全新的事务所办公室。
Following the announcement by Groß & Partner of UNStudio as the unanimous winner of the architectural design competition for the FOUR Frankfurt project, we are happy to announce that UNStudio has now joined forces with HPP Architects to create a consortium (UNS + HPP) to carry out the next phases of the project. Both companies bring many years of experience with large-scale projects, complex planning and design processes. In order to further enable a local presence, we have also established a new headquarters in the Westend in Frankfurt.
Comprising four high-rise towers with a multi-storey plinth and housing mixed-use programmes, large public spaces and incorporated subsidised housing, UNStudio’s design for the former Deutsche Bank site will create a ‘City for All’ in the heart of Frankfurt.
继去年被选为法兰克福前德意志银行地块城市策划的获胜者，UNStudio获得全票一致通过，再次胜出该地块重建计划的建筑竞赛。评审团由城市代表，建筑师和城市规划专家以及Groß & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH组成，共八位成员。两个三等奖项颁发给Dudler / Jahn团队和MSW / Snohetta团队，优秀奖得主是Christoph Mäckler/ CoopHimmelblau团队。
Following having been selected as the winner for the urban strategy of the former Deutsche Bank site in Frankfurt last year, UNStudio has now also been unanimously selected as the winner of the architectural competition for the redevelopment of the site. The eight-member jury consisted of representatives from the city, architects and urban development experts and Groß & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH. Two third prizes were awarded to the teams Dudler / Jahn and MSW / Snohetta, while an honorable mention was given to Christoph Mäckler / CoopHimmelblau.
The competition brief was to create a mixed-use, urban city quarter consisting of four high-rise towers and a multi-storey plinth in the heart of Frankfurt. The redevelopment includes retail, gastronomy and hotels, as well as a comprehensive range of accommodation. The four towers, which will be up to 228 meters high, will redefine the Frankfurt skyline.

因为重建计划，Groß & Partner将会在与外隔绝超过45年的城市中心地点建立新的公共空间。项目落成后，估计将会有最少3,000人在这新小区工作、1,000人居住。因此，除了住宅和办公楼外，综合体还包括餐饮、商业、酒店、商店、儿童游乐场等功能。
With the redevelopment, Groß & Partner will create new public space at a location in the city centre which has been inaccessible for more than 45 years. At least 3,000 people are expected to work in the new neighbourhood, while about 1,000 people will live there. Apart from apartments and offices, the complex will also include catering, retail, hotels, local shops, a children’s playground and adventure areas.

Mike Josef, City Councilor: “The project will play a pioneering role in the transformation of Frankfurt’s banking district into a mixed-use quarter. With the new layout of the site and a greater mix of programmes, a new space with a publicly accessible roof area and affordable living space will be created. The centrally located site, which has for a long time been closed, will now be open to the public. This will become a lively neighbourhood, not only for working but also for living.”
The centrally located 16,000 square meter site was purchased by Groß & Partner real estate development company – who will be carrying out the development of the project – back in 2015. Situated in the very core of the city, the site has been completely inaccessible for the last 45 years. Now four new high-rise towers will change Frankfurt’s skyline from the air, while cultivating its liveliness on the ground. The development of these towers, reaching heights of 228 meters, will open up new streets to create a multi-use, vibrant inner-city quarter, bringing together a healthy mix of work, living, relaxation and recreation.
The choice of programmes allows for a smooth transition from Frankfurt’s shopping district to the east of Roßmarkt, to the high-rise office towers clustered around Park Taunusanlage. With a development concept that is unique to Europe, the FOUR Frankfurt project brings together facilities that will establish a lively new neighbourhood for Frankfurt, its visitors, and its (future) residents.
“FOUR Frankfurt will be built, first and foremost, for the people of Frankfurt. It will not only add to the city’s skyline, but also to the liveliness of Frankfurt as a whole. A development with this level of urban effect is particularly timely, as Frankfurt is currently taking up an even bigger role on the European stage. To play a role in this urban transition is a fantastic opportunity for UNStudio and our new consortium partners HPP.”
Ben van Berkel, Founder / Principal Architect, UNStudio
The new high-rise complex will be integrated into the expanding city structure by incorporating the heritage-listed facades of the Junghofstraße into the design and by making a multi-storey base building the connecting element of the entire site.
“FOUR Frankfurt condenses both the skyline and the urban fabric of Frankfurt with diverse opportunities for urban life.”
Joachim H. Faust, Managing Partner at HPP
According to the assessment by the competition jury, the unique quality of the quarter can be found in its public development and amenity value. The new development will therefore create connected spaces, accessible rooftops, pathways and passages. The existing block on the Junghofstraße will be opened up to strengthen the surrounding pathways and ensure a high level of accessibility. This will create a multi-use, diverse quarter comprising 50% office spaces, 30% living accommodation (including subsidized housing), in addition to retail spaces, restaurants and hotels.
“The future of the city will gravitate towards its centre, and the design of the FOUR project both emphasises and enables this. By pushing the conventional boundaries of work, play, mobility and quality of life, we will once more position Frankfurt as a trendsetter.”
Christian Veddeler, Director / Senior Architect, UNStudio
“UNStudio and HPP bring to the scheme many years of experience working on major projects, as well as a combined expertise in design, BIM-based planning processes and complex execution.”
Werner Sübai, Responsible Partner at HPP
