MainTor Palazzi

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

Two five-storey urban villas, each with a penthouse, roof terrace and pergola, will make for spacious, and luxurious living.

In the MainTor quarter on Frankfurt’s Untermainkai luxury apartments are being built on the front row, offering uninterrupted views of the river. Two five-storey urban villas, each with a penthouse, roof terrace and pergola, will make for spacious, and luxurious living. The façade of Villa 1 is sectioned by a frontispiece, which is interrupted by three vertical rectangular windows per storey.

To the left and right of this the facade with the loggias is set slightly back. Villa 2 reverses the principle used for the façade. Here, the loggias are arranged along the central axis, while to the right and left a projection interrupted by windows juts out. The two villas are connected by a two-storey structure on the ground and first floor. All loggias and pergolas have glass railings, which are printed with classicist patterns.

Access to the apartments is via a staircase located on the North side. The facades of the villas are clad with light stone, which lends the houses a restrained and simultaneously high-end appearance. There will be a two-storey underground car park below the villas.
