A new building designed by architect Paul Raphael Schägner in collaboration with Hamburg architectural firm Winking-Froh Architekten GmbH is being constructed for NRW.Bank in the heart of Düsseldorf’s Government Quarter. Werner Sobek was tasked with providing the structural planning for the two hybrid-timber high-rises that form the centrepiece of the building overall.

Environmental Sustainability in a Prominent Location

Consisting of an atrium block and a tower measuring just under 100 metres in height, the project’s twin high-rises are connected together by a base building to create an architectural ensemble located in Düsseldorf’s “Blue-Green Ring” development zone. Both structures also set a variety of benchmarks, not least with regards to the environmental sustainability of their design. Holistic sustainability qualities in accordance with the latest technical standards based on the cradle-to-cradle principle.
