Reflections in the facade of the ARCOTEL Onyx Hotel near the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. The facade of the hotel captivates with sharp contours and shimmering exterior surfaces. The construction with a glass curtain wall is reminiscent of the crystal Onyx. The contours mimic the sharp edges of a crystal. Glass elements and vacuum panels were combined as flush window structures. The square windows with circular gradient print on the edge were integrated flush with the façade structure. At night, the internally illuminated transparent surfaces act as spotlights directed at the building structure. The glass facade was screen-printed with a special ink. The rear glasses are enameled.

Reflections of a modern house in windows of the building opposite. In the foreground a delimiting wall construction.
When walking to a lake in Tutzing my eyes wandered the landscape, and my mind drifted into trains of thoughts. An interesting new apartment building with a massive fence in front caught my eyes. I wondered: Is living in a big, stylish, modern apartment really different from my living in a modest nest by the Gautinger woods, where I can always see through my windows vast stripes of trees? What would the people there see every day? Of course, they see things through their eyes. The eyes, in turn, see things through the windows. The windows become the eyes. If we look closer, really closer, we see what others see in the reflection of the world IN their eyes. Sometimes darker. Sometimes rosier. Sometimes obstructed by a wall, physical or mental. Beautiful. Distorted: The Eyes of concrete bodies
