The Fürst & Friedrich office and retail development in the centre of Dusseldorf is a striking new build that incorporates a fine and carefully preserved classical facade at the centre of the structure.
Its clean lines and pared-down architecture, measuring 115 metres in length, bring a calming note to the streetscape and makes its grand statement at the junction of Friedrichstraße and Fürstenwall, looking out over Kirchplatz.
The ornate natural-stone frontage, surrounded by the transparent surface of the new glass facade, continues to carry the weight of a stand-alone building. A physical reminder of the region’s Prussian heritage and featuring the city arms of Cologne, Koblenz, Dusseldorf, Aachen and Trier, it now enjoys a prominent position in the urban space and lends its own distinctive character to this modern new build.
The office floors are modular in design with a wide range of possible layouts tailored to tenants’ requirements and ranging from open spaces with meeting islands and private areas via combination zones with transparent conference rooms to individual or group offices. Exterior terraces on several floors provide additional breakout space. Designed with optimum technical and energy efficiency in mind, it holds LEED Gold Standard certification.
