Core Concept and Motivation

“For as long as I have been able to think and feel, a place void of culture, beauty, structure and tangibility has always been a place of coldness to me. Entrepreneurship offers me a unique opportunity for design and responsibility and at the same it requires of me and my family sustainable support of culture that is rooted in our basic democratic order in my hometown of Hamburg. This includes assistance measures for my employees during difficult times in their personal lives as well as a clear political statement. The loss of culture inevitably leads to the loss of our identity.”
