Unique design meets planning sophistication
Unusual architectural ideas are demanding from a planning perspective and sometimes cannot be implemented immediately. So it's all the more exciting when architects and engineers enter into a creative exchange and develop realisable and equally impressive structures from a situation of conflicting priorities. This is exactly what has happened with the new entrance to the Messe Düsseldorf buildings. The glass foyer with floating conference area and the exhibition centre canopy formed of rhomboidal diamond shapes is a real visual highlight, as is the 75m-wide, column-free exhibition hall.
The new entrance area simultaneously delivers the desired functionality for the subsequent operation of one of the most successful international exhibition centres in Europe.
The exhibition centre canopy underwent the most intensive development during the planning phase: The original design of irregular honeycombs filled with air had to make way for a more uniform rhomboidal diamond structure in conjunction with a membrane-like material. The uniqueness of the 150m-long roof structure reflects a successful symbiosis of architecture and structural planning.
ZEBRA in Europaviertel, Frankfurt
The future office building gets its name from its dark facade with white, curved textile covering. Unlike its namesake, the ZEBRA in Europaviertel will have a very distinctive design, which will also be reflected in its high-quality interior. Schüßler-Plan is advising on contracting strategies, quality assurance and technical/economic controlling for various cost groups. We are also responsible for the tenant/investor coordination within the meaning of the AHO Booklet.
Modern “Fürst & Friedrich” new-build on historic crossroads
The foundation stone has been laid on the corner of Fürstenwall / Friedrichstraße: Construction work on the “Fürst & Friedrich” is in full swing. One year ago, work started on the demolition of the former headquarters of the WestLB bank. The historic facade has been retained and will now be integrated into the new building. The seven-storey building will provide 15,000 m² for offices, events and restaurants. Schüßler-Plan is responsible for the structural planning of the high-rise and the site and structural planning for the foundation pit.
