The FRAME façade by Herzog & de Meuron makes a striking impression:
On the Aaron-Bernstein-Platz side,
high-quality clinker brickwork outlines the large, floor-to-ceiling wooden-frame windows.
On the south side, facing onto the private courtyard garden, the building dissolves into an open, raw concrete structure that forms broad, generous loggias across the entire width of the building.
The architects Herzog & de Meuron
“On FRAME’s southern façade, the floor-to-ceiling windows are recessed further into the building’s interior, creating loggias across the entire width of the building. This beautifully extends the living space into the large green courtyard with the changing seasons. This allows the loft building to the south to visually dissolve into the open concrete structure.” Herzog & de Meuron
Founded in 1978 by Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron in Basel, the architects have been working on prestigious projects for decades. Winners of the Pritzker Prize, the team have won international recognition through projects such as the Tate Modern in London, the residences at 56 Leonard Street in New York, and the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
The hand-formed bricks on the north façade are intentionally reminiscent of the historical materiality of the site. Herzog & de Meuron carefully composed the precise colour nuances created when the clinker bricks are fired at different temperatures. This fascinating interplay between light and dark, illumination and shadow, brings the unique façade to life.
Inside and out, Herzog & de Meuron’s design follows simple rules: Clean straight lines, reduction, and generous proportions create living spaces that are as minimalist as they are exclusive.
The home as a private gallery
Extra-high ceilings and ample living spaces achieved with a minimum of supports provides a perfect framework for individual expression. Even the stairwell at FRAME with its smooth exposed concrete and line lights reminds visitors of the look and feel of a contemporary gallery.
The grey, polished cobblestones extend beyond the front door and into the entrance area – connecting the city and its architecture in a stunning way.

An exceptional place to live, work, shop, and immerse yourself in art and culture: AM TACHELES is an emerging urban quarter, a cosmopolitan city hotspot taking shape under the architectural master plan of Pritzker Prize winners Herzog & de Meuron.The neighbourhood
