The two-story residential building on Heger-Tor-Wallstraße was considered a part of the Wall ensemble that was worth preserving, but was not a listed building.
The house was destroyed in the Second World War and then rebuilt. However, the fabric of the building showed some defects, which repeatedly led to new repairs, renovations and modernizations, so in 2016 the owners decided to demolish it.

As a new beginning, a modern office and penthouse complex, which extends over a three-story structure was built on the land where the property once stood. The ground floor houses a gallery and the fourth floor, reduced in area, a penthouse apartment.

Short description
There were many criteria that had to to be met as the same flooring spec was to be used throughout multiple individual areas of the new building. In the gallery on the ground floor, special attention was paid to the UV stability of the floor coating due to the many floor-to-ceiling windows. The topic of "footfall noise reduction and noise level" was also important. This is why the decision was made to use a seamless PU coating, which, unlike mineral coverings, is not rock-hard, but rather elastic which offers a comfortable walking floor. Another positive effect for residents, guests and staff is the better acoustics. The floor does not reflect the sound as strongly as a tiled floor. This means that the acoustics in the rooms are pleasant.

The structure showed cracks in some places, for which there were different causes. Improved statics and higher load capacity were achieved by stiffening the structures, frictional connection of the disturbed foundation and decoupling the components gate, passage hall and gate houses components. Particularly on the western side, intense blackening of the rock surface had built up, which was strongly interlocked with the ground. The deposits were composed of a mixture of soot and plaster. The cleaning process carried out in 1990 with the help of water could only result in a superficial cleaning. In 2002, the newly developed method of particle beam cleaning and cleaning by laser made it possible to remove soot and plaster without destroying the original surface.

On the façade surfaces of Kaispeicher A, there was a lot of efflorescence and lime aging, both signs of penetrating moisture. The damage patterns indicated a lack of frost resistance as well as no protection against driving rain. The listed façade required extensive frost and moisture protection, but was not allowed to undergo any visual changes.
