Innenhafen Duisburg

For more than 100 years, Innenhafen Duisburg used to be a place of commerce and transhipment. Meanwhile, trends for s successful structural change have been set here. At an area of about 89ha, its downtown location and the listed mills and warehouses that shape the townscape provide a unique development potential, which is being utilised to convert the old port into an urbanistically and architecturally sophisticated new and attractive quarter.
Situated right next to the historical city wall and only a few minutes from downtown Duisburg, around the architecturally attractive warehouses and mills a multifunctional service centre is developing.
Based upon a master plan drawn up by British architect Lord Norman Foster, within the framework of the Internationale Bauaustellung Emscherpark (construction exhibition) an integrated intra-urban development concept has been realised in an exemplary fashion.
The sensitive conversion of listed mills and warehouses (e.g. Küppersmühle, Hafenforum, Faktorei 21) was as much part of the revitalisation projects as spectacular new buildings (e.g. Five Boats, H²-Office, Eurogate, Hitachi Power Office ). Within the framework of the mixed use of the area , that is, working, living, leisure and culture, all construction projects were somehow associated with “water” in terms of both their function and design. It was thus possible to bring the port into town and the town to the port, as it were.
