PhoenixWERK

New working in a historic context

New working in a historic context

In the city of Dortmund, situated between nature and historic industrial architecture, a building with innovative workspace is being created: PhoenixWERK. Its high-quality clinker brick façade adapts the look of the existing historic Phoenixhalle, a former factory building, and follows in on the tradition of the former foundry. With its clear orientation towards the historic blast furnace and Warsteiner Music Hall, it blends in naturally with the industrial architecture of the German Ruhr region.

Working amidst green oases and historic industrial architecture

Outside, PhoenixWERK blends in perfectly with the historic surroundings of the old PHOENIX West steelworks site, while inside it offers a prestigious and unique working environment. High-quality office space with spacious roof terraces on the upper floors and restaurants and bistros on the ground floor as well as an extensive outdoor area already add to the charm of the square called Phoenixplatz.

Sophisticated solutions by heroal – high-quality, modern and efficient

During construction, individual requirements of both tenants and investors are met with greatest flexibility. The architectural concept for this neighbourhood also includes a car park in the immediate vicinity. The exclusive architecture focuses on a sustainable and eco-friendly construction, state-of-the art technology and high-quality, exclusive materials – all of this lends style to the entire ensemble of office buildings. Therefore, the project managers at the German architecture firm SHA Scheffler Helbich Architekten GmbH decided on high-quality, sustainable solutions made by heroal.

During the tendering phase, heroal’s Project Service provided support by getting in touch with the metal construction company Metallbauers Metallbau Lamprecht GmbH, in addition to selecting suitable systems. For the acceptance of tender, heroal’s Project Service was just as important as the system solutions themselves. In total, PhoenixWERK was equipped with around 550 m² of the curtain wall system heroal C 50 HI, 14 elements of the door system heroal D 72, 3 lifting-sliding systems heroal S 77, 172 windows of the system heroal W 72 and the concealed Siegenia fittings heroal WF 100 i.

Versatile product features are convincing

Promoting the sophisticated architecture of the project, not only does the energy efficiency of the aluminium systems play an important role, but also their design. The highly thermally insulated system solutions offered by heroal meet the highest demands on aesthetic looks, design and strong lines of modern architecture, and are perfectly suited for individual, sustainable buildings. To underline the industrial character of the building, the heroal systems installed are coated in RAL 9005 (deep black) using highly weather resistant heroal hwr powder coating technology.

Smooth running of works on site

The first two units of PhoenixWERK were completed in 2020. The fact that this project is running so smoothly is due, not only to the high-quality solutions and the committed skilled workers on site, but also to the close coordination between all parties involved.
