VEBA’s former main administrative building that sits very close to Kennedydamm is being modernized and has to be completely gutted. The building will receive a new curtain façade with openable windows, staggered, Teflon-coated façade sails and a decentralized ventilation and air-conditioning system and an additional floor of offices will be added. Each floor within the building will be fitted with a 1.875 meter planning grid that will enable flexible division of the 400 m² offices. A generous roof terrace affording views over the Rheinpark will be built on the 11th floor and a new mezzanine level will be constructed to enable direct access to the underground car park.
