New building at the Mannheim train station
The architectural office blocher partners conducted the new construction of the Euro City Center West which is adjacent to the traffic hub of the Rhein-Neckar region. The 12-storey Euro City Center West, a design by the architects, is close to the Mannheim Main Train Station and houses offices from the ground floor to the third floor; the upper storeys of the new building are reserved for the InterCity Hotel, with a total of 155 rooms. The architectural office designed the first and second basements as an underground garage which is accessible by car via the adjacent Tunnelstrasse.
Working closely with the client, the current tenants and expert planners, the architects brought a project to life that – despite the inner-city challenges of accessibility and transportation connections – would also respond to changing conditions and amended needs.
