Frankfurt: Hadi Teherani celebrates groundbreaking for Scandic Hotel in “Hafenpark Quartier”


Building construction of the new quarter in the immediate vicinity of the European Central Bank is commencing with the groundbreaking ceremony for the second construction phase of Hafenpark Quartier Frankfurt on the 29th of January, 2020. The structural ensemble was designed by Hadi Teherani, the internationally renowned architect based in Hamburg, Germany, and is being enacted by the B&L Group, equally based in Hamburg and in charge of the entire development of this riverport park district.

Only a few metres away from the banks of the Main and directly adjoining the park itself, a 505-room conference hotel in the upscale business segment is being erected for the Scandinavian market leader Scandic along with 288 condominiums displaying fantastic views of the Main and the Frankfurt skyline. At the centre of the draft, which emerged as the winner of a closed, by-invitation-only competition, are two striking residential highrises standing in the quarters first row.

“I’m very glad that realisation of the ‘Hafenpark Quartier is now making distinctly visible progress, says Mike Josef, chief planning officer for the City of Frankfurt am Main. “Everything a vibrant quarter needs is arising here at an outstanding location: a well-tuned mixture of apartments, hotels, offices, shops, gastronomic facilities and a daycare centre.”   

Thorsten Testorp, managing partner at the B&L Group, explains: “As builder we are absolutely thrilled by the architectural draft. With his vision of an exclusive, urban way of life, Hadi Teherani is creating a landmark that is going to form a sense of identity for its residents and the whole ‘Hafenpark Quartier.   

“With our hotel we view ourselves as a part of this riverport park district. Thats why we want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere exhibiting a pleasant residential feel. Scandic stands for sustainability, freedom from barriers and a sense of inclusion. Inspired by local influences and in combination with Scandinavian design, these values are going to be equally expressed here at the Hafenpark’,” according to Michael Schutzbach, managing director at Scandic Hotels.

"Open Frameworks Design Edition” wins GOOD DESIGN Award 2019


The Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, and the European Centre for Architecture, Art Design and Urban Sciences have now awarded the prestigious GOOD DESIGN Award 2019 to the "Open Frameworks Design Edition", which Hadi Teherani developed together with Parador.

With the Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani last year, Parador presented a unique engineered wood flooring and laminate collection that redefines design on the floor in an innovative way. The Design Edition combines different shapes and colours to create a completely new approach to floor design, whose design limits reach into infinity: The plank elements of the engineered wood flooring and laminate range can be combined in a wide variety of ways and create space for almost unlimited design possibilities. The "Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani" has now been awarded the prestigious and internationally renowned GOOD DESIGN Award 2019 for this innovative design and technical approach.

For their innovative design approach, the Open Frameworks Design Edition by Hadi Teherani have already received several awards, including the red dot Award for Product Design, the German Design Award 2019, the European Product Design Award 2019 and the Iconic Award: Innovative Architecture 2019.

Topping-out ceremony at Volksbank site


Today, on the 11th of December, the topping-out ceremony was festively celebrated at the 6,000 square metre Volksbank site. The structural work was already able to be completed at the beginning of December, ahead of schedule. This means that construction work on the interiors and façades can now commence at the new headquarters of the Volksbank Freiburg, a savings and loan bank, and equally includes office space for rent, retail shops, the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, the new auditorium at the St. Ursula Gymnasium secondary school, and office space at the Breisgauer Katholischer Religionsfonds, an ecclesiastical foundation. In his laudatory remarks, Uwe Barth, spokesman for the executive board at Volksbank Freiburg, and in this case also speaking on behalf of Johannes Baumgartner, chairman of the foundation at the Breisgauer Katholischen Religionsfonds, expressed his particular gratitude to all of the construction workers, craftsmen, foremen, logistics specialists, crane operators and lorry drivers: “The topping-out ceremony is intended to be symbolic of the people who stood here each and every day on the construction site, regardless of the weather, and made sure that this building grows and grows in every sense of the word. I think we’re all well aware that this work isn’t easy. I want to say thank you to everyone involved for this fabulous achievement – they all did a wonderful job!” A welcoming address by Professor Martin Haag, the head of municipal construction planning, was followed by the traditional topping-out speech. This was given by Michael Dürrmeier, foreman at ZÜBLIN, the general contractor, who wished the building ceremonial blessings and good luck.
