Building project: Building a new, modern college seminar building for FOM Hochschule für Oekonomie & Management University of Applied Sciences gGmbH with approximately 1,400 student seats, office units, underground parking and a spacious, green campus.
Le Quartier Central is a lively, newly planned and nearly complete district in the middle of Düsseldorf. Its creative surrounds are the future home of the new university study center for FOM Hochschule in Düsseldorf. The innovative building with approximately 1,400 student seats features an extraordinary exterior façade with curved cantilevered balconies. Lecture halls, seminar rooms and office units are equipped with modern media technology. The nearly 8,000m2 campus gives way to a generous park facility with a subterranean parking garage below.
The nonprofit college FOM is Germany’s largest private university. With 24 study centers in Germany and further facilities abroad, the colleges boasts a student body of approx. 21,000 professionals and trainees who study parallel to their profession. A new building became necessary due to the Düsseldorf university’s steadily growing number of students at the. To this end, the FOM Institute purchased the lot from aurelis Real Estate GmbH & Co. KG. Construction should take place until the end of 2014.
