City hall of Düren

Architect: Denis Bon­vier

The late Gothic town hall of Düren had been comple­tely des­troyed in the Second World War. The ten­de­ring for the recon­struc­tion of the war-battered town centre also included the con­struc­tion of a new city hall which was opened in January 1959. In 1989, the building was listed as an architectural monu­ment. The city hall underwent tho­rough refur­bish­ment from 2012 to 2015 and has been reo­pened in July 2015.

With a building space of approx. 41,000 m³, the city hall accom­mo­dates the complete city admi­ni­s­t­ra­tion staff in about 200 office and ancillary rooms. There is also a cashiers' hall, three con­ference rooms, rooms for the city and dis­trict archive and other municipal facili­ties. The pro­mi­nent municipal coat of arms above the city hall clock con­sists of 25,000 Milan glass tes­serae.

GU solu­tion: 478 Vertical-Pivot win­dows, 2 automatic sliding doors, 250 SE locks, 56 double knob cylinders, 30 wall readers, master key system con­sisting of 300 janus cylinders
