The tailor-made facade for the One Forty West in Frankfurt am Main was created according to a meticulously prepared plan.

The architects at Cyrus Moser also claim “A high-rise like a tailor-made suit” for the One Forty West hybrid high-rise in the Senckenberg district in Frankfurt am Main. The 145 meter high building now stands on the site of the AfE tower between Westend and Bockenheim, which was blown up in 2014, right next to the historic Senckenberg Museum.

Spectacular view, true engineering...

As an element of a four-part building ensemble, the building houses a hotel and top-class restaurants as well as condominiums with spectacular views. For this purpose, the apartments were only located from the 24th floor and were equipped with floor-to-ceiling panorama windows, glass balcony parapets and "sky lounges". Some of the hotel rooms are also located in the upper area up to and including floor 23 offer views of the Frankfurt skyline or the Taunus.

The balconies are arranged like a tiered band around the upper floors. The staggered structure enables visual axes across several floors. Style element that carries Cyrus Moser's concept of the "vertical city" to the outside in One Forty West. The Skybar on the 15th floor with a spacious open terrace is just as striking.

Meticulous logistics for sophisticated assembly

Like the building itself, the facade is divided into different areas, for which Lindner not only developed, manufactured and delivered the various elements, but also took on the logistical preparation, planning and handling of the professional installation. This had to be done individually for each floor in the upper part first the façade elements, then the balconies.

You can read in the current issue of Bauingenieur 2022 May how the staggered balconies were assembled in a precise assembly cycle and assembled with small tolerances in the joint pattern.
