Building development.

New office structures for an office complex in Cologne.

In the Cologne inner city, a heterogeneous complex of buildings of the Deutsche Bank was transformed from a single to a multi-tenant office complex.

The central task was to develop a strategically and economically sound overall concept for the transformation of 6,000 m² of office space into freely lettable, separately accessible, flexibly dividable renting units. Through a combination of various separate individual measures, a solution for the landlord was found with which a flexible and economically viable reaction to tenant wishes was possible.

The power of the possible

Office concepts and fit-out standards were developed so that a number of different fitting choices and use possibilities were available in order to attract different tenant types.

The surfaces were allocated meaningfully into different sized renting units which could be flexibly marketed. The realization was carried out over two years and during on-going use as spaces did not all become vacant at the same time.
