Sebastian Treese on influences, inspirations and the roots of his design at Ludwigkirchplatz.
The new apartment building is an exotic one, a maverick, as are the buildings around it. Here, no building looks like another; eaves heights vary, as does the architecture of each facade.

In his regular newspaper column, the developer illuminates wide-ranging and often complex topics. A man with over 40 years’ experience in the field, Ralf Schmitz knows a thing or two about property, be it buying your own home, investing in bricks and mortar, providing for old age, or taking advantage of historically low interest rates. And he’s more than happy to share his insights and opinions when asked, something he does in a no-nonsense, easily understood and often entertaining way that helps make the subject matter more approachable.
