Ippolito Fleitz Group recently finished the revitalisation of the lobby and interior for the office of SOLO WEST, Frankfurt

Old offices need renovation to meet the needs of modern corporations. German design studio Ippolito Fleitz Group has recently completed the design of SOLO WEST in Frankfurt, focusing on the public space, lobby of the office building and two rented offices.

Upon arrival at the building, the two-storey lobby is composed of vertical lamellae at irregular intervals, giving the walls a dynamic progression and a sense of spaciousness.

The ceiling of the lobby is formed by a suspended polygon of stainless steel. To conceal lighting systems, lights are put at the top edge of the lamellae, making the lobby brighter in the reflection of the ceiling.

Facilities in the lobby are in line with design, including an upholstered seating element and a reception desk of black and white solid surfaces.

The design of the offices is in white, highlighted by three display cases, opulently filled with tropical, jungle like vegetation.

To adorn the interior, the designer has placedUni a series of large photos on the wall. Most photos are not permanently installed and can be replaced freely to make new backdrops.
