The job was to develop a presentable and functional new headquarter for Deutsche Börse in the Neue Börse development area in Frankfurt’s Hausen district. The IT requirements were particularly high because Deutsche Börse set up its software development centre on the premises. All rooms of the building were to get as much daylight as possible – with a spacious glass-roof covered courtyard turning out to be the most economic and aesthetically pleasing solution. It doubles as atrium and meeting point/cafeteria for employees.
