Designing the most sustainable office building in Germany

Chapman Taylor has created a competition-winning design for a new office development, BOB.Düsseldorf Airport City, with the aim of making it the most environmentally sustainable office building in Germany.

The developer competition was won by Aachen-based office developers BOB efficiency design AG, which engaged Chapman Taylor to create a design for their bid.

BOB.Düsseldorf Airport City aims to be the most environmentally sustainable office building in the country.

Flexible office space for varied requirements

The 14,750m² GBA building offers six office floors and two underground car and bicycle parking levels. The central access core, with an open stairwell and two elevators, is bright and spacious and offers the flexibility to subdivide into as many as three units per level, with a rentable floor area starting from 230 m².

The multi-space floor plan allows for a combination of cubicles, open-plan offices, team offices, quiet spaces and zones for different kinds of communication, creating a diverse range of workspaces for differing requirements.

A lively external appearance

A double-height entranceway opens the building to the street, with the entrance located in the courtyard, which is visually unified with the courtyard of the neighbouring building.

The façade has been designed with a 1.35m grid to allow efficient and flexible fit-out of the office spaces. A varied mix of wide fixed windows and narrow openable windows, offset from one level to the next, combines with solid elements in three different tones to create a lively appearance for the new building.

Following on from our AirGate, AirPark and AirView projects, this will be the fourth office building that Chapman Taylor has designed for one of the most dynamic office locations in the city.
