Private House Frankfurt/Main


Frankfurt/ Main, built in 2020-2022
Client: Private
Architects: Dietz Joppien Hammerschmidt Architekten

The construction project is a 3-story residential building with 2 residential units and an underground parking garage in Frankfurt/ Main.
The special feature of this project is not only to develop an optimal structural system that is serviceable, stable and economical but it should also be flexible and sustainable for future changes of use.
The building volume is partially displaced laterally between the individual floors and contains areas that cantilever out of the system. The exterior reinforced concrete walls act as wall-like beams to brace the upper floors to the underground parking garage.
Another challenge is the southwestern area, which requires a high degree of spatial flexibility. This necessitates a span of the supporting structure of approx. 7 to 8m. For this purpose, wide-span hollow core slabs were planned and implemented to reduce the dead load.
Furthermore, the option for an additional storey is to be considered. The basement was designed to be impermeable to water.

Inner-city project of a commercial building in the centre of Falkensee with an area of around 5000m². The ground floor will be mainly used by catering facilities, the three upper floors are office spaces. Below the building with around 77m length is a parking garage reached by a car-lift. Due to the fact that the ground water level is close under the terrain surface a detailed planning of the watertight-concrete-construction was necessary. The neighbouring existing buildings are underpinned with high pressure injections.

Munich 2016-2017
General contractor: Nüssli (Switzerland) Ltd

The AUDI exhibition space for the IAA consisted of a 55 x 70 m 3-storey hall with a completely dismountable steel structure. A mirrored façade of the entrance hall, floating car bodies as well as the foundation for the primary structure had to be assembled quickly and accurately. For the foundations following was required: After the end of the exhibition, all foundations had to be removed again. Therefore, ballasted foundations were used instead of the tensile anchorages in the foundation.
