‘The Wid Two’ is situated in the heart of Cologne's fashionable Ehrenfeld district on the Widdersdorfer Straße. A special scent can be smelt around the neighbourhood. Not only because the world-famous 4711 perfume has been produced here for decades, but also because the district is characterised by multiculturalism and creativity. As one of Europe's most innovative metropolises, many students and young people are determined to help Ehrenfeld prosper. Thanks to its pioneering and sustainable focus, ‘The Wid Two’ district is helping to fulfil this aspiration.
The architectonic design based on sustainability and innovation combined with the tradition of the Ehrenfeld commercial district bridges the gap between historical Ehrenfeld and today's thriving, lively environment. A historical brick base on the ground floor forms the basis for future-oriented wooden hybrid facades that appeal with their open design and their greenery. This innovative concept has not only created a building with lighthouse character, it also shows that the charm of the old Ehrenfeld must not be lost in new developments.
