Central Library, Frankfurt/Main

Central Library, Frankfurt/Main

In 2005 the man branch of Frankfurter Stadtsparkasse (Frankfurt Savings Bank), which was built between 1954 and 1956, was converted and now houses the central municipal library in Frankfurt/Main. With its characteristic natural stone facade, the ensemble has preserved its original charm. The main element on the inside of the library is the spiral reading tower at the end of the main hall, which with an integrated elevator, links the various storeys. Like all the important elements it is a bright red.
