New architectural impressions: The KII (Kö-Bogen II) was opened in summer 2020. With the biggest greened façade in Europe, this distinctive business and office complex in the heart of Düsseldorf city centre instantly catches the eye.
The square between the Düsseldorf Schauspielhaus (theatre) and Schadowstrasse was redesigned by the renowned Düsseldorf architectural firm Ingenhoven, known for its sustainable and close to nature projects. A market hall with a green roof, modelled after the New York Lincoln Centre, faces a block of buildings with a stepped wall, planted with eight kilometres of beech hedges. The unobstructed view of the Düsseldorf Schauspielhaus (theatre) should be largely preserved.
