The former seat of the ECB

The 40-story Eurotower's striking architecture has been a feature of Frankfurt's city center since 1977. It stands opposite the Frankfurt Opera House and takes up a whole city block.
The building was the headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB) from 1998 until the ECB moved to its new home in 2014. Following extensive renovations, it is now used by the European banking regulator.







Complex logistics

In the two symmetrical halves of the building, the division into western and eastern sections aids in orientation. The building is accessed via three groups of elevators, each assigned to certain floors. The corresponding signs in the elevator lobbies are therefore particularly important.








Although the design of the signage elements is based on the signs used by the ECB, they differ in terms of color and detail.
