bongardstrasse apartment block. düsseldorf
The purpose of a residential building is to embody tranquillity, cosiness, safety and stability together with a particular quality of design. These requirements are central to the design of the apartment block in Bongardstraße. Alternating rising and falling lines together with smooth projections and recesses results in a subtle, fine profile on the inside of the façade – creative expression as a rediscovery of art of construction and craftsmanship. For this reason, external features were kept bright, using lots of white. In addition, the interiors use a great deal of fine materials on the walls. All surfaces, constructions and materials – inside and out – were chosen because they look good in the light.
