A 63-metre office tower block was to sound the final chord of a series of high-rise buildings and at the same time mark the transition to the existing city. It is located in the former dockland area that was redeveloped to form a multi-faceted commercial and recreational centre. Highly diverse forms were tried out in a number of preliminary studies. The final decision was for a powerful, monolithic form with a monumental capping. This grand gesture nevertheless accommodates offices that are designed entirely according to the human measure. The contrast between the large-scale and the human dimensions is visible in the use of material: on the one hand rough natural stone, on the other meticulously detailed glass façades. All fifteen floors of offices can be organised in any way thanks to a central core with all facilities. A number of terraces are located on the top floors to enable people to enjoy the spectacular view of the city of Düsseldorf (text from architect's website).
