The non-profit FOM University is Germany’s largest private university. With over 24 study centers in Germany and abroad, FOM enrolls more than 21,000 working students, trainees and apprentices. The new building of the FOM University Düsseldorf provides the necessary space for the ever-increasing numbers of students. The building can accommodate around 1,500 students and reflects on the infrastructural context of railway tracks, bridges, ramps and pedestrian connections in the building design.
VOLTAIR is a conceptual fusion of innovative co-working. The project typology reflects individual working clusters as flexible spatial units. On the ground floor, the building opens up towards the streets and towards the inner courtyard designed with trees and seating areas. In the middle of the facades, a horizontal gap around the building creates outdoor spaces and relates to the height of the viaduct across the street which runs through the entire center of the city.
