Impressive sustainability features

Completed in 2008, housing 90 retailers, this inner-city regeneration project is a successful retail environment in the heart of the German city of Duisburg.  It is the first retail project in mainland Europe to be awarded a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating for its impressive sustainability features.  

Retail across four levels

The mall, which is spread across four levels, is designed to represent individual buildings to create a continuation of the urban fabric and surrounding streets.

The retail space is part of a wider 106,000m² development offering 1,200 parking spaces, a direct underground railway link, a children’s day care centre and a range of services for people with restricted mobility.

Golden Ladder landmark

As a part of an art programme, a specially designed 65 metre-high sculpture, ‘Goldene Leiter’ (Golden Ladder) connects all levels of the Forum.  Projecting 54m above street level, the sculpture protrudes 35m through the glass roof to create a new, distinctive landmark on the city skyline.  The ladder is made from 32 tonnes of steel covered with 24-carat gold leaf. 

Chapman Taylor worked with T+T Design to design and deliver the mall.
