The reflecting glass façades of Deutsche Bank’s twin towers, which are popularly called “Debit” and “Credit”, make them stand out prominently in Frankfurt’s skyline. Depending on the way the sun is shining the towers appear cold or sometimes even luminescent. The floor plans are offset to prevent the windows from looking into each other. And something that is particularly important for hot days: it is supposed to make the cool air from the Taunus Mountains flow past them better and into central Frankfurt.
In front of the entry hall stands the 5-metre high granite sculpture “Continuity” by Professor Max Bill, a Bauhaus artist. This has been chiselled from a block of stone in the form of a two-sided endless strip.
