Highrise | Cologne | Germany


Highrise buildings always pose the questions of urban integration, view axis, scale and proportion. For the regeneration of former docklands, the concept study suggests a series of highrise buildings along the waterfront. With a limitation in height and proportion, historically important landmarks in the city are not being challenged in the urban composition. The proposed design suggests two slim highrise tower situated next to each other and connected in base and head. One tower is proposed for residential use, the other for office and commercial functions. The base serves as a commercial center supplying the needs of the immediate neighborhood.
