Stadtspeicher Flensburg

Breathing New Life into a Century-Old Grain Storage Icon in Flensburg

I’ve documented the ongoing transformation of the historic Stadtspeicher (City Granary) in Flensburg, Germany. This project involves the redevelopment of the Stadtspeicher, which will soon house offices and restaurants while preserving its essential structural framework.  

The Stadtspeicher, standing tall at 38.50 meters, was originally constructed in 1923 as a municipal grain silo, designed by architects Paul Ziegler and Theodor Rieve. Its history includes significant damage suffered during the Kiel Canal explosion incident in June 1945. You can clearly discern where the new brickwork meets the old, giving the building a fascinating texture and telling its unique story.
