A beaux arts private home in Frankfurt, Germany, was renovated to become a 60,000-square-foot insurance office. Uli+friends provided interior and exterior lighting designs. The chiaroscuro facade turns the iconic building into a city landmark.

Inside the building, the architect creates tension between the historically protected walls ceilings, floors and decorative plaster work by adding contemporary furnishings and modern art. In collaboration with the architect, the lighting design became contemporary as well. Pendant task lighting minimize interference with the ceilings, and UV filters on all the luminaires protect the artwork.
