Hofgarten palais. Düsseldorf


With the new Hofgarten Palais, the inner city district in the direct neighbourhood of the Düsseldorf Theatre and the Hofgarten Park clearly gains in profile. The simple block-like form combined with the delicately rippled surface of the light natural stone characterises the sculptural effect of the whole building.

The rhythm of the window openings in the horizontal direction follows a continuous cycle, which is elaborated to a tune in the vertical by an implied cornice and the changing window sizes with their deeper reveals .
Dynamic in its proportions, the seven-storey building opens with a generous gesture to an extended public space on Bleichstraße, where the distinctive mature chestnut tree reinforces the character of this newly created urban square.
The window balustrade grills give the Hofgarten Palais an unmistakable urban elegance, which is increased with French charm by the slightly projecting balconies.
The offices, designed with lawyers and financial auditors in mind, have an area of almost 18,000 m² and are extended along Goltsteinstraße with attractive apartments. Behind facades protected by listed building status are classic modern luxury apartments with a view on to the Hofgarten Park.
