Verwaltungsbau der Mannesmann Röhrenwerke

The admin building designed in 1911-1912 is probably Germany’s first modern admin building. A uniform column spacing makes for a flexible use by installing non-supporting walls. This now very customary design was then used for the first time. Based upon the size of an office for six, the architects planned a width of 3.19m.

The building has two inner courtyards, surrounded by the offices’ hallways. The building has a sand-coloured tuff facade and a base floor of light-grey coquina, contrasting with the black slate roof. Mies van der Rohe, Gropius and Le Corbusier among others also contributed to the planning and construction of the building, for which the architect was inspired by Italian renaissance palaces.

The building is currently (as of 12/2022) undergoing a multifunctional conversion by the Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb des Landes NRW (Construction and Property Management Company of the State of NRW)
