The highly representative importance of the Citizens Advice Bureau is not only reflected in the redesign but also in the location, that is, in the middle of the DomRömer Quarter. With its »new historic center«, the city, which is known for its modern skyscrapers, created a sensational district that shows how versatile and livable Frankfurt is – through the interplay between traditional and modern. This special environment and its self-confident attitude and positive image were taken up by the architects and transformed into a valuable spatial concept that puts a spotlight on the city and makes it possible to experience it in a multidimensional way. In particular, young people and newcomers should be attracted by the unique atmosphere.
The design language seized upon the traditional color and material of the surrounding environment and contrasted them with cool materials. The interior is taken hold of by a circumferential band that is a warm shade of red, attracting the attention of passers-by. The high-quality natural stone floor picks up the color and at the same time is inspired by the true-to-the-original sandstone tones of the Quarter. In addition, the rhombic structure of the above-mentioned band, which appears three-dimensional due to attached brochure holders, is also quite striking. The inspiration for this was the traditional »ribbed« apple wine glass of Frankfurt. Visitors will find constantly updated brochures and flyers here in a clearly categorized manner.
