The almost 80-metre-tall cylinder made of steel is no conventional building, but rather has a status similar to that of the Eiffel Tower in Paris..
The Gasometer’s (gasholder) redesign is based on the historical appearance with the telescopic container inside the structure that can be moved up and down. The grey steel provides the frame, with the round-shaped new construction keeping a respectable distance of one metre. At the base of the Gasometer (gasholder), a modern conference area is also being created within the green steel shell – the “dome” familiar to audiences of the political talk TV show “Günther Jauch” will be dismantled in 2019 and then put to use at the EUREF-Campus Düsseldorf. An auditorium with 1,000 seats, the so-called Forum of EUREF-Campus, is part of the conference area, which is approx. 8,000 square metres in size.
Starting from 16 metres above the base, inside the Gasometer (gasholder), an office building with an area of around 20,000 square metres is planned. The façade predominantly made of glass will ensure that the building has a high degree of transparency. On the top floors, public spaces for presentations and events will be set up behind the steel and glass façade – including a view of Berlin from a height of around 80 metres. The project will cost more than EUR 100 million and is to be completed by 2023.
