Rheinauhafen, Construction Site 4. COLOGNE 
 

Like a ferry at anchor in front of the Severinsbrücke bridge: exterior – white elegance, balconies and panoramic glass, interior – operational duties. The office and commercial building in Cologne's Rheinauhafen is noticeable for its ship-like form. The horizontal shape rises with sculptural lines from the surroundings and positions itself close to the iconic "Kranhäuser" (crane houses). The choice of materials plays a part: bright aluminium panels and large glass areas with powder-coated frames. All the apartments in the building have large private balconies and loggias. Exclusive living space is provided on the penthouse floor with three comfortable residences and large roof terraces. The ground floor, on the other hand, provides attractive areas for a lively urbane restaurant and retail scene in a prominent location. With this building, RKW fills the last gap in Rheinauhafen, which now forms the new face of the metropolis on the waterfront. This is precisely the right anchorage for this building.
