The Upper West, consisting of a 118m high tower and a building complex directly on Breitscheidtplatz in Berlin, is one of the biggest buildings in City West and breaks new ground. With a total surface area of 53,000 square metres, there will be, as of 2016, retail spaces, offices and to date the largest hotel in the Motel One group. Moniteurs designed a concept which encompasses both the representation of the tenants in the various buildings and the orientation in the tower and the complex.
Moniteurs has won the competition to design a new orientation system for the Deutsche Museum Munich. In single construction stages the museum will be extensively modernized and restructured until 2025. For Moniteurs the core of the task is the development of a signage concept for the inner and outdoor areas with the focus on the collection building and the museum island.

The pleasant highlight of the winter semester 2014/15 was the degree-show of the University Bielefeld/Design department. The concept for a new corporate design and a digital guide as a webapp were developed and designed by a team of students, taught and supported by Heike Nehl.
Moniteurs wins silver in the category "Healthcare" with "Doctors without Borders" and bronze in the catagory "Wayshowing" with the Signage project for the DGUV. The International Institute for Information Design (IIID) is a global network of individuals and organisations who are interested in optimizing information and information systems for knowledge transfer in everyday life.
Heike Nehl and Sibylle Schlaich have been invited to talk at Haus Wellensiek in Bielefeld on the 11th of February. They will be asking the following questions: how does digital media support orientation and what role does analogue information play in the orientation systems of spaces? How can both worlds compliment each other? Through their work with orientation systems, the design office wishes to show how rapidly change has been accomplished, not least in the mind of the visitor/user.
