Since 2010, on the former “Tivoli” area alongside the Krefelder Straße, a new and attractive residential area is in the making, spiked with high profile office and commercial spaces. The new development of a 3-star Hilton group hotel – halfway between the motorway and the historical city center – marks with its cubing´s conscious superelevation and its extraordinary façade not only the new city quarter but also the important city entry situation at the foot of the “Lousberg”.

The façade as accent – The hotel encloses the square shaped property on three sides. The 164 guest rooms and additional spaces are combined by design into a compact, partly pending structure above a generous driveway and seamlessly connected open hotel lobby.

The hotel´s outstanding and memorable constitutive criteria is the custom made curtain wall made of three-dimensionally shaped aluminum sheets. They are vertically arranged – breaking through the punched window façade´s stringent rhythm and creating a subtle dynamic through their varying dimensions. With its spatial deepness and powerful crimson colour, the hotel´s façade sets a distinctive creative mark with a striking long range effect at one of the city´s most important radial roads.
