Refurbishment concept and construction


2002 – 2005

The Project

Refinement of the concept until it is ready for execution – preparation of a specification of services – specialist construction management with the difficulty of taking into account ongoing events (Hertha BSC soccer; rock concerts during the summer break)

The stadium

The Olympic Stadium was partially constructed as an earth stadium, with only the upper ring, which is supported on numerous reinforced concrete pillars, protruding above ground level. All visible exterior walls and pillars were clad with Franconian shell limestone.


Natural stone offers infinite value and status through its formation over millions of years and its unique character, color, texture and durability.

Inclusions and layers of stone tell stories that instill respect; natural stone represents creation and transience like no other building material.

Great respect and the ultimate feel for stone are required when it comes to choosing the right stone for your project. Specialist knowledge and decades of experience, which are often only passed on internally, are in demand and priceless. Even if design and sales already have an idea, they cannot be left alone here.

Which stone, from which quarry, is suitable for realizing the architect’s design. A deep knowledge that the client can trust. Transparency and partnership relieve the burden on those responsible in advance and ensure the desired effectiveness, which is the basis for the added value of the buildings.
