Architect: Architektur­büro Ulrich Engel, Hamburg

This was built in two parts according to the design by the Hamburg firm of architects Ulrich Engel: only the listed south and west facades of the old bank building were retained; these were labo­riously refur­bished and supp­le­mented by natural stone facades to the east and north. The seven storey new office complex is also free­standing and slightly offset.

The facade is a combi­na­tion of glass and light jura stone with a fine horizontal structure. The buildings are connected by a plinth storey which has been lowered to create a new open space which rises slightly above street level.

The compact volume of the new building of the NRW BANK in Münster forms a successful symbiosis with the adja­cent listed building.
The inte­g­rated fully glazed revolving door is powered by an und­erfloor drive and has no canopy cover as the ceiling forms the connec­tion between the revolving door and the building directly. The air cur­tain system is a vertical ver­sion.

GU solu­tion: revolving door
