Jürgen Mayer H. Architects are proud to announce their winning the RKM740 competition for a new high-rise building in Duesseldorf, Germany. Design development already began in late 2013, and completion is scheduled in 2017.
From the Architects:
The façades are designed as cloud-shaped, horizontal waves that shroud the building like a gown, lending it a light, sculptural character. The three-dimensional, perforated, and semi-transparent façade elements direct views inside and out and protect from the sun and wind. The planting of the terraces and balconies will improve the microclimate and provide a natural atmosphere in combination with the adjacent generously open spaces.
The spirit of historical hospital grounds will be continued in combining medical-commercial uses with new, quality residential construction. The base of the building will house retail outlets for medical goods, doctors’ offices, and a floor with surgical practices.On top of this, 14 residential floors will rise featuring floor plans and sizes that allow for various residential concepts with an orientation that responds to the location of the plot. The upper floors open an impressive panorama view far beyond the Dusseldorf city limits.
