2012 – Directly next to the Opera in Hamburg, quite a large area of several buildings was taken down, making room for a new office building, which was named after the cinema which found its place again in the basement of the building: The Metropolishaus. The special challenge of this building was the foyer and reception being in the first floor. A light-channel, integrated into the floor, guides the visitor from the entrance on the ground floor via the staircase to the first floor into the building. Additional areas for lighting design were the liftlandings and the connecting bridge-walkways in the building.
