Bauer Type Foundry

Bauer Type Foundry, 1878

In 1878, the Helfmann brothers built their new headquarters for the Bauer Type Foundry, which has been formed in 1833. Its distinctive roof, bordered by chimneys led it to become known affectionately in Frankfurt as the “chimney academy”. In the industrial revolution era, factory construction was a profitable business, HOCHTIEF constructed several buildings for the Bauer Type Foundry alone.
