On the edge of Dusseldorf’s planned Grand Central quarter, at the junction of Moskauer Straße and Erkrather Straße, a new 3-star, 455-room Holiday Inn Express hotel is currently taking shape. The curved structure follows the sweep of the street on which it stands, creating an open space that softens the transition to the adjoining neighbourhood.
The rounded form of the building is accentuated by the narrow offset rectangles of its matt-polished facade, which interconnect like the links of a watchstrap, while the fully glazed frontage of the 4.5m-high ground floor creates a fluid connection between inside and out. In addition, all roof surfaces will be extensively greened.
