brandherm + krumrey are designing an extraordinary foyer for the new Fürst and Friedrich office building in Düsseldorf. In the middle of the city centre, the client Art-Invest combines a historic natural stone façade with ultra-modern office architecture. For the anchor tenant Design Offices, approx. 5,500 square metres of flexible office environments with coworking and office spaces, conference and event areas are being created here.
The foyer designed by brandherm + krumrey opens up behind the neoclassical façade of the old building. The Düsseldorf-based architectural firm Slapa Oberholz Pszczulny conceived the room as an impressive five-storey reception area with light-coloured natural stone walls. Panoramic lifts take people up to the upper floors and allow for impressive views of the old and the new. Upholstered window niches, an espresso bar, and cosy seating arrangements make the interior design particularly inviting and provide a space for informal encounters. Relief works by artist Jan Albers also contribute to the special ambience. Spatial impression, design, and art combine to create an unmistakable atmosphere that lends the new office building its very own identity.
