Project description

W+P Gesellschaft für Projektrealisierung mbH has been commissioned with the general planning for the interior refurbishment of the west and administration wing of the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen.

One of the main buildings of the renowned Folkwang University of the Arts is located in the former Werden Abbey in Essen's Werden district. Parts of the baroque style residence building are now to undergo an interior refurbishment. W+P Gesellschaft für Projektrealisierung mbH was commissioned with the general planning for this complex project.

The task includes the basic refurbishment, i.e. the complete refurbishment of the interior areas from the basement to the attic in the west and administration wings, including the inside of the exterior walls, the windows, as well as the ceilings, walls (interior walls and interior side of exterior walls) and cellar vaults in the basement. The listed façade, parts of the attic in the west wing and the attic in the administration wing remain unchanged.

Completion of the project is planned for early 2027.
