Since August 2013, DB Schenker has been centring its managerial functions at Gateway Gardens at Frankfurt Airport, which houses the world’s second largest logistics company in the 16-storey ALPHA ROTEX – a prominent landmark building soaring to a height of 68 m.
The internationally renowned architecture firm Jo. Franzke designed the ALPHA ROTEX based on a rounded triangular floor plan. Each wing revolves around the building’s core, alternating their orientation from the eighth floor up using the principle of point reflection. This creates a unique shape, different to the conventional building block.
All levels provide access to the 30-metre-high conservatories, with sweeping views of the skyline, airfield and central park of Gateway Gardens.
