Le Quartier Central

Düsseldorf, Germany

Classic elements of town houses define the facades; these elements include floor-to-ceiling windows, stone window ledges and balustrade columns for the balconies.

On the site of the former marshaling yard in Düsseldorf’s Pempelfort district, a new residential ensemble is being built. In this context, a new perimeter with an urban gardens is being developed. The plan is for multi-storey residential buildings to be erected along this perimeter, and behind that town houses. The complex will encompass a park, while a front garden will be created running around the boulevard buildings – the space will be assigned to the apartment dwellers as outdoor space. 

Despite having uniform facades the houses are designed differently inside. The narrower buildings are developed as in-law apartments or studios, the patio type combines living and working area. The materials used for the new houses is of an outstanding quality. Classic elements of town houses define the facades; these elements include floor-to-ceiling windows, stone window ledges and balustrade columns for the balconies. The facades of the houses are divided into a base, shaft and capital.

The buildings on the boulevard have stone-clad corner projections and base zones of stone, the shaft areas have rendered facades with an integrated insulating system. Rendered facades are proposed for the town houses.
