KENNEDYDAMM DUSSELDORF

Our design for the Kennedydamm in Dusseldorf creates a unique and carefully embedded landmark at one of the main entrances of the city coming from the airport, fair towards the innercity of Dusseldorf. It finds its prominent position at the intersection of three Bundesstrassen in the North of the city establishing a strong, surprising and fitting answer to the urban, architectural and programmatic questions of the competition.

In order to fit in properly with the surrounding context, we split the building in two parts: the sub volume and a higher tower volume. The sub volume creates a pleasant public space and opens the building up on the ground level. The carefully positioned tower forms a gesture towards the city and the highway. On the roof of the sub volume we envisioned a large green roof garden which adds a unique extra quality to the users of the building and its surroundings.
