Mix used high-rise building
_The site is in Frankfurt am Main, on the north-western part of the river, between the centre and Hauptbahnhof. The exact location of the site is between Gutleut Strasse and Wilhelm-Leuschner Strasse. At the moment there is 18 storeys building and a gas station, the Highrise building should be instead.
_The project should piece out Frankfuts skyline with skyscrapers, which is visible from any brige across the river.
_Main cocept of the building comes from orientations through typology and functions in the building. Tha shape of the building reminds kind of curved tube, which is rising to the sky. Building by itself shouldnt be only a building but also an element, which creates a border between public, semi-public and privat space.
_The area is in big development during last years, so its very hard to define, which functions of buldings are there in majority. At the moment there is definitelly the function of livng, but in couple of the years, it should be created lot of office buildings and services. The concept of the scyscraper is not just to design a living, but it is about conection of all the functions together.
_Underground there is a parking, than offices in the first 8 storeys of the tower, shopping centre in the southern part, differnt kinds of flats, and on the top there is a sky cafe and fitness centre for inhabitans and workers in the building.
_The building by its shape creates a semi-closed space, which is used like a park, because this spaces are in the area at the moment rare and needed. The park is very closely connected to the shopping centre and restaurant in the ground floor.
_ The park should be place to meet, place whre u can shopping, take your children out (there is a small playground), place where you can relax. Or for the inhabitans its also the green place which can please their eyes, when they look from the window.
_The scyscraper is designed to maximalize the views to he east - to the river, and close fasade a bit from the north.
