Taunusturm

The 68-metre Taunusturm residential tower block in Frankfurt is planned as an exclusive residential building by the project developer Tishman Speyer. Kinzo designed the floor plans as well as the interior furnishings of the 44 upmarket apartments. Each of the individually planned apartment units has an individualised kitchen and bathroom design – aligned in its general design vocabulary but individual in its execution.

Down to every last detail the concept fulfils the highest standards of craftsmanship and material quality, combining modern requirements with classic elegance.

We have often fallen flat on our faces: but the risk has paid off and Kinzo has undergone an incredible evolution.

We always think three-dimensionally. It’s always about form, function and construction. Everything has to blend harmoniously, everything has to fit!

The three of us have worked well together ever since we were students. And it was always clear to us that architecture doesn’t stop at the doorstep.

Our concept of design and architecture is fun-packed and doesn’t shy away from the risk of innovative and unusual approaches!
