Winner! Congresshall in Saarbrücken

we won! First place for our design for the extension of the listed Congresshall in Saarbrücken at Hafenstraße by a modern, multifunctional new building (MKK) for congresses, trade fairs, exhibitions, concerts and seminars does not only mean a great chance for the trade fair business:

The green connection of the Saar, the Bürgerpark and the city transforms the site/competition area into a landscape of high quality of stay and into a meeting point for the public of Saarbrücken. The new building looks like a friendly solitaire and contrasts with the existing building – its roof contour on the outside follows the functions and necessary height profiles on the inside, which makes the object look elegant and dynamic.

More information about the project here and here.

Topping-out ceremony at Wallhöfe Ratingen on July 26th

On the site of the Hertie building, which has since been torn down, the new usage will be divided into five independent residential structures, which are loosely arranged on a landscaped base level. This allows the volume to be integrated in a compatible manner into the small-scale urban environment. After years of not being able to establish a functioning subsequent use in the large-format existing building, Tecklenburg Projektewicklung is now realizing an open residential and commercial quarter with 4,900 m² of retail space and approx. 5,500 m² of residential space.

Work on the building project has progressed so significantly that the topping-out ceremony will now be celebrated on July 26, 2022.

The future of city centers - A positive development example: The Wallhöfe in Düsseldorf Ratingen

On July 26th, the next online event of BUILTWORLD, the leading event platform of the international real estate and construction industry, will take place. Gerhard Wittfeld talks to Benjamin Schrödl, Partner Real Estate Advisory, PwC and Hermann Tecklenburg, Managing Partner, Tecklenburg about the Wallhöfe on the site of the former Hertie department store in Ratingen. Here, an openly designed commercial and residential quarter is being created with five independent structures loosely arranged on a landscaped base level. This allows the volume to be integrated in a compatible manner into the small-scale urban environment. A ‘boulevard’ with a foyer provides a pedestrian connection to the retail areas on the base level, thus expanding the pathway and square structure of Ratingen and linking Düsseldorfer Platz with the city center.
