The crossmedia house (built in the 1970is) of the westdeutscher rundfunk WDR is located in the historical center of cologne at the tunisstreet. We reducted and arranged the buidling mass due to a new urban evaluation. The restructuring is based on 637 permanent loft working spaces, arranged around open green atrien. the concept supports everywhere nature light and different zones (working, communication, relaxing) in a high flexibel structure.
