Dorotheen Quartier (DOQU)

Stuttgart, Germany

The new Dorotheen Quartier is a high-end building complex occupied by luxury retailers, offices and residential apartments at the heart of the city of Stuttgart. The envelopes used for the three buildings differ in terms of materials and construction type and feature the highest standards of architectural design.

The office facades consist essentially of natural stone and aluminum and glass window elements. The shop fronts of the luxury retail outlets are uniformly configured with large-scale steel post and beam facades filled with insulating glass. The most ambitious part of the building is the gigantic roofscape, consisting of a glazed post and beam construction. The glazed roof is designed to produce the appearance of a glacier landscape and the glass panels are covered with a variety of white films.
