In the invited competition for a new high-rise building in the Heerdt neighborhood of Duesseldorf, Germany, the office of J. MAYER H. Architects was recently announced as the winning team. The design development for the 19-story tower already began in late 2013, and the architects expect completion in 2017.
It's not the first competition success for JMH in Duesseldorf — in November 2011, the Berlin-based practice won one of two first prizes for the urban planning concept "Quartier M."
Read on for more information we've received from J. MAYER H. Architects.
"The spirit of historical hospital grounds will be continued in combining medical-commercial uses with new, quality residential construction. The base of the building will house retail outlets for medical goods, doctors' offices, and a floor with surgical practices. On top of this, 14 residential floors will rise featuring floor plans and sizes that allow for various residential concepts with an orientation that responds to the location of the plot. The main daytime and outdoor spaces will be oriented toward the south, east, and west, while subordinate use spaces like kitchens and bathrooms face north. The arrangement of the spaces allows both for modern, generous, and flowing spatial arrangements and classical solutions with closed rooms."
