CROSS Architecture as Architects

Hotel building for the Hilton Group

On the site of the former Tivoli on KrefelderStraße, a new attractive residential area with high-quality office areas and commercial premises has been under construction since 2010. With a deliberate increase of the building volume and an exceptional façade design, the new 3-star hotel building for the Hilton Group, which is located halfway between the motorway and the historic city centre, not only marks the entry to the urban district but also the entrance situation at the foot of the Lousberg, which is important as regards the urban context.


Façade as accentuation

The hotel with 164 guestrooms frames the square site on three sides and is designed as a dissolved perimeter development. The hotel rooms and secondary rooms are arranged in a solid volume, which spans the generous, welcoming driveway and the seamlessly adjoining open hotel lobby as a compact, partly “hovering” building section.


The hotel’s outstanding and distinctive design characteristic is the custom-made curtain wall façade made of three-dimensionally shaped aluminium sheet, which as vertically arranged lamellas cover up the strict rhythm of the punctuated façade, while its varying dimensions generate a subtle dynamic on the façade. With its strong spatial depth and vibrant purple colour, the hotel façade adds an unmistakable design highlight visible from afar at one of Aachen’s most important arterial roads.
