The Ger­ling Quartier is one of the largest urban devel­op­ment projects in Ger­many. The grounds, which were once the head­quar­ters of the Ger­ling insur­ance com­pany, have been fun­da­men­tally rede­vel­oped and upgraded with con­tem­po­rary build­ings fea­tur­ing pre­mium-qual­ity fit­tings. The Quartier, which is sub­ject to a con­ser­va­tion order, has sub­se­quently had new life breathed into it and now accom­mo­dates modern res­i­den­tial and office build­ings with a his­tor­i­cal charm in a cen­tral loca­tion.

The court­yard, which is located between refur­bished and newly con­structed façades, is dec­o­rated with his­tor­i­cal foun­tains and state-of-the-art spe­cial LED lumi­naires by Selux. The clas­si­cally ele­gant MTR steles blend superbly into the var­i­ous archi­tec­tural styles, cre­at­ing a refined light mood during dark­ness.

The mature LED tech­nol­ogy guar­an­tees both a stable light colour and a uni­form lumi­nous output. The 4 and 6 metre high steles pro­vide illu­mi­na­tion on three and four sides, gen­er­at­ing homo­ge­neous, cus­tomised illu­mi­na­tion with their tried-and-tested Selux lens tech­nol­ogy.

This fusion of his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary archi­tec­ture with future-com­pat­i­ble tech­nol­ogy cre­ates a modern 21st-cen­tury clas­si­cism making the Ger­ling Quartier a truly unique loca­tion.
