Thyssen-Haus (Dreischeibenhaus)

The 94m, 26-storey building is broken down into three staggered 6m-wide slabs. The steel skeleton with a curtain facade reminds one of contemporary American trends the architects seem to have taken up but the latter certainly developed their own concept with the “three-slab-idea”.
The slim silhouette of the slabs and the breakdown with the access and utilities wing in the central slab makes for natural light for all offices. The narrow end walls are covered with stainless steel sheets; the curtain facade made of glass, stainless steel and aluminium ends half a metre above the turf and thus demonstrates its quality as a non-bearing element.
The elegant and natural structure of the building and the exposed location between the old and new Hofgarten on the eyeline of Berliner Allee and Kaiserstraße turned it into a Düsseldorf landmark.
The Düsseldorf “Dreischeibenhaus” is a pioneering element of German high-rise construction.
Renovated in 2014 by HPP Hentrich-Petschnigg & Partner GmbH + Co. KG.
