LocationKö-BogenKönigsallee 240212 DüsseldorfGermany
The Koe-Bogen connects the renowned shopping street “Koenigsallee” with the “Hofgarten” park. The even facade in pale stone and glass is broken by diagonal cuts with sculptures and planted greenery. These create on the side of the “Hofgarten” park a combination of nature and architecture, of indoor and outdoor space. The asymmetrical floor plan attracts attention due to its curves, wavelike embayments and sharp angles. The two parts of the building are connected by a bridge. The three lower floors house the flagship stores, exclusive boutiques and restaurants. The three upper floors provide space for offices. The four-storey underground car park is accessible via newly built road tunnels.
The directional system in the entrance area to the car park and offices has been developed in collaboration with Derksen Lichttechnik specifically for this building. From the ceiling, three recessed PHOS 60 systems project information onto the wall between ticket machine and elevator. The devices are controlled via the in-house data bus system and present current information depending on time of day and day of the week.
