The construction of the Project Köbogen 2, Düsseldorf, started in May 2017:
The Hofgarten in Dusseldorf is an historic park of Maximilian Weyhe. As a result of 1960’s transportation planning the link between park and innercity was severred, making the park hard to reach. Through demolition of the elevated road and the construction of a tunnel for vehicles, in addition to an underground cleared the way for a new structural arrangement of Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz. The Köbogen 2 comprises of two buildings, which interact with the public space and address differing building heights in the immediate area. The six-storey office and commercial building , featuresbevelled facades, forming a valley-like situation. This provides a clear visual link between itself,the Schauspielhaus (theater) and Dreischeibenhaus, two listed examples of post-war architecture. Thanks to its green design, the building contributes to creating a positive microclimate and further integrates the square and theater into urban life.
