Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf

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.
