The KöBogen is located in the center of Dusseldorf and houses a new office building with luxury retail stores and high-end offices. Two separated buildings, connected by a bridge with a stunning view, draw historic urbanism references. The space between the buildings functions, in the shape of a public passage, as a link between nature and city. The facades are interrupted by diagonal, leafy cuts and therefore broach the issue of landscape and architecture. The terraces and courtyards are also planted and bear references to the Hofgarten. Both buildings are made accessible through representative main entrances towards the Königsallee and the Hofgarten.
