Currently under construction and scheduled to open later this year in October (2013), Kö-Bogen is a six-story 432,300-square-foot office and retail complex designed by Daniel Libeskind for downtown Düsseldorf that marks an important transition between urban space and landscape.

“Two city blocks will be joined with one continuous roof line, forming a unified space for walking, shopping and working.” says Daniel Libeskind. “The building will also create a connected space between the Schadowplatz, a pedestrian street, and the Hofgarten, the central park in Düsseldorf.”

“A two-story connecting bridge with roof terrace will connect the east and west blocks of Kö-Bogen and between the two blocks will be green courtyards, which will also provide generous daylight to the interior spaces.”

“Permeated cuts into Kö-Bogen itself will allow for the landscape to naturally blend and flow into the building space. The green courtyards and green roof become part of a new environment that bridges urban space with park space, a fitting entryway to and from the Hofgarten.”
