Main: East Side Lofts

Main: East Side Lofts is a mixed-use building located in a rapidly developing neighborhood near Frankfurt’s East Harbor (Osthafen). The project is composed of two parts: the renovation of a neoclassical building that was never completed because of the outbreak of World War I, and a contemporary addition of equal size that completes the original structure. To create a cohesive whole, the addition interprets the volume, rhythm, and proportions of the original building, but reimagines them in a contemporary language with new materials. Certain elements of the original interiors—like their timber beams—were maintained in the renovation, creating contemporary living environments that pay homage to the building’s history.
