From 1998 to 2000, the headquarters of the Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf was completely renovated and extended. The special structures in steel and glass planned by Werner Sobek include an approx. 170 m long glass wall along Berliner Allee, partly used as an exhaust air facade, and a 12 m high glass screen on the high-rise roof, braced by glass ribs. It continues the contour of the actual high-rise facade.
Media Facade that Can be Used as a Screen
A 15 m long “media facade”, a glass wall that can be used as a screen, adjoins both sides of the building complex. In the northern area, behind this facade, there is a glass cube with a steel skeleton. The cube is 18 m high, 13 m deep and 24 m wide. It serves as an entrance hall and creates an inviting atmosphere through its brightness and expanse.
