The large administration building was built between 1978 and 1982 and tenanted the Cologne Employment Agency until 2018. The central location and the immediate proximity to the university make Luxemburger Strasse an attractive location for students and commercial tenants alike. 


The building complex in need of renovation, comprises a block with seven polygonally arranged segments enclosing a courtyard open to the eighth side. The highest part of the building has 15-storeys. The scheme is divided into two sections, with 530 student apartments in one and approx. 11,000 m² office space in the other. 

The building is constructed as a reinforced concrete skeleton structure and will be completely gutted. The exciting challenge of this project is to convert the existing functional architecture into an attractive residential building for students as well as into modern office space for the commercial section of the building. The courtyard will be landscaped and playfully designed.
