Schultz's Institute

The former Schultzsche Institute is a cultural monument in Offenbach am Main . The building at Geleitstrasse 94 received the Offenbach Monument Protection Prize 2015.

In 1898, the Beck brothers construction company built the building as a private girls' school. The school was operated under the name Schultzsche Institut .

It is a detached two-storey villa with a high, slate mansard roof. The neo-baroque stone facade has a rich structure. On the left there is a conspicuous risalit with columns in colossal order and three-part windows, in the bel étage with a blown gable. Above the risalit is a curved front gable with the year of construction "1898" in the middle. In the parapet area there are simple rectangular window frames with decorations.

Since 1971 the building has been used as a municipal day-care center and educational advice center. From this time came an annex that was not listed as a historical monument. The property has been empty since 1999. In 2011 it was acquired by the Hans and Ilse Breuer Foundation and renovated from 2013 onwards for 3.6 million euros. The extension was demolished and the roof was re-covered with natural slate. The windows were replaced by wooden windows suitable for historical monuments. Inside, the staircase from the construction period has been preserved. The original enclosure with carved sandstone posts and picket fence has also been preserved.

The property has been used as a dementia center since 2015 and offers space for nine people in outpatient care groups.
