This ten-storey office building opened at the beginning of the 1990s as the ‘Lahmeyer-Haus’. Like many buildings from that time, the increasingly sophisticated demands of tenants and Frankfurt’s oversaturated business real estate market quickly rendered the building no longer competitive. It stood empty for many years until project developer Phoenix Real Estate recognised its attractive position in Frankfurt’s Westend and decided to completely gut and revitalise the building. Since Phoenix itself rents office space in the building for its Frankfurt branch, the brief was simple: “to build the best house in the respective market segment”. Our studio was commissioned to design the entrance lobby and the access and supply cores for all storeys, as well as interior architecture for two rented offices.

Pizza! Always a delicious slice of memory. Of Italy. Of sun, espresso, the Vespa. Of the unique Italian instinct for lifestyle and dolce vita. Marché International tunes into this attitude towards life with its new restaurant concept, reinventing the pizza with White Monkey. To underscore this unconventional approach, the internationally aligned restaurant brand clearly positions itself as a pizza lab and bar: ingredients are combined in unusual ways; the pizzas are long instead of round, they are cut with scissors and shared amongst friends; the pizzeria becomes a cocktail bar, an urban meeting place that is open all day. In the constantly expanding yet fiercely competitive market of system gastronomy, it is crucial to do more than just present a coherent restaurant concept. With a Corporate Design that comprises not only interior design, but also the complete brand communication from logo to restaurant décor to website and social media presence, we have created a consistent and remarkable brand image for the White Monkey brand – with interdisciplinary thinking in place of salami tactics.
