B.O.C. bonneshof office centre. DÜSSELDORF A modern module in the further development of a complete site: in the northern Düsseldorf district of Golzheim, RKW realised the Bonneshof Office Centre (B.O.C.), an extension to the 2007 T.O.C. office building. It is RKW's ninth building project in the immediate neighbourhood. Designed for the user KPMG, the B.O.C. is based on an end block with four parallel wings extending at right angles from it that not only enmeshes with the neighbouring buildings, but also manages to offer many views out and connections with the outside world.
Internally the building is clearly laid out and defined by strong movement axes, such as the grand central corridor on the ground floor. A bistro and a series of conference rooms with a park view are located behind the reception. The corridors in the upper floors, on the other hand, are main movement routes used for everyday activities, with printing and photocopying points, staff tearooms and part-time working zones. From outside, the most eye-catching feature is the third core element of the design: the facade. Some parts of the glass facade have black photovoltaic and white printed "climate panels" attached, which together produce a shimmering net effect. These panels reduce the external energy consumption of the building and create pleasant lighting conditions, while the photovoltaic panels contribute to electricity generation. With this triad of green environmental measures, clear organisation and an innovative facade, the B.O.C. is an independent, intelligent office building for the upwardly mobile district of Golzheim.
