In a prominent location in the immediate vicinity of the Mannesmann Tower and in a listed surrounding, the new building ensemble offers a total of approx. 12,500 m² of office space on the Rhine. The transparent and elegant structure of alltours Flugreisen GmbH's new corporate headquarters is adjoined by a building with freehold apartments along Mannesmannufer and to the rear of Berger Allee a building with retirement housing and a nursing and care facility. "I am very much looking forward to our generous new building", explains alltours owner Willi Verhuven on the occasion of yesterday's presentation of the construction plans.
The choice of location on the Mannesmannufer is the basis for a company headquarters in a prestigious environment. At the same time, it is important to deal sensitively with the cultural significance of the surrounding area and the adjacent district of Carlstadt. The new u-shaped building ensemble will fit into the city skyline on the Rhine, enclosing the existing perimeter block structure and integrating all sides into the surrounding existing buildings. "For the alltours headquarters, a fine, vertically segmented façade structure made of stone pilaster strips was developed as a distinctive design element with an overall calm but modern architectural language," explains HPP Senior Partner Volker Weuthen.
The demolition of the existing building, which has been vacant since 2012, will begin in November and completion is scheduled for the end of 2021.
