Sustainable architecture meets striking brick aesthetics

Completed in 2022, the Sophienkontor, a striking dark brick building near Kiel's main railway station, blends harmoniously into the existing, heterogeneous cityscape with its cubic shape and colour scheme and creates a striking new address.

The six-storey building comprises a street-side section with a characteristic corner tower and two rear wing buildings with staggered storeys that open out onto a green inner courtyard. The brick façade of the building presents an interplay of smooth and relief-like surfaces, with protruding rows of bricks providing a special plasticity. Designed in accordance with the guidelines of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), the Sophienkontor was awarded gold certification.
