Security Concept for the German Consulate General and the Official Residence in San Francisco
The Georgian-style buildings that house the Chancellery and the Consul General’s residence date from the 20s of the last century. They were built using the timber frame construction that was typical for the USA at that time. The facades consist of a wall made of red bricks. As the buildings do not meet the standards required today in terms of seismic strength, fire protection and physical security, redevelopment is currently being planned. The general planning is carried out by the US planning office TreanorHL. OLIVER GERHARTZ Architekten was commissioned with the creation of a concept to ensure physical security and the planning of security elements from Germany.
