Modern office worlds by the suspension monorail
The world-famous suspension monorail runs through the central Wuppertal district of Elberfeld – largely above the river Wupper that gives the city its name. Vis-à-vis the monorail station there, we planned a special building with office and catering space ranging from 300 to 2,000 square metres. From the pen of the Düsseldorf office of HPP Architects, it displays a representative façade of elaborately profiled fair-faced concrete on the outside. Angular, partly triangular white elements and floor-level windows complement each other to create a striking look.
The highlight of the Ohligsmühle building, however, is on the inside: The concrete outer skin is constructed as a load-bearing façade in order to realise completely support-free areas on the inside, in favour of an optimal room layout and flexibility of use. In addition, the building is tailor-made according to green building standards: energetically optimised, resource-saving and cost-efficient. In 2013, we were thus able to complete an urban feature with high visibility in a district steeped in tradition.
