Parking in style at Stilwerk, Düsseldorf
Stilwerk in Düsseldorf brings dozens of premium furnishing brands together under one roof, as one of three branches in Germany billing itself as the ‘The Destination for Design’. From the classic to the avant-garde, from the kitchen to the bedroom, customers can browse exclusive high-end products and services to furnish their home.
The contemporary, award-winning building was designed by the architecture firm Slapa Oberholz Pszczulny (SOP) in 2000. The elliptical steel-glass construction rises 32 metres high, culminating in a glass roof that can be opened when the weather allows – it’s no wonder they say that the Stilwerk building has its very own heaven.
The adjacent Königsallee shopping street and nearby old town are just some of the destinations within easy reach of Stilwerk.
Q-Park has operated the underground car park at Stilwerk since 2012, with 469 spaces spread across three levels. Providing high-quality parking facilities at a central location is part of Q-Park’s philosophy, so it was only natural to harness its expertise to develop this well-designed complex.
Since acquiring the facility, Q-Park has invested more than EUR 700,000 in offering the parking experience that makes Q-Park so renowned.
The car park features a bright design and clear layout. Among Q-Park’s signature features are its use of black pads to denote the amply-sized parking spaces. A state-of-the-art parking management system ensures a smooth parking process – from the moment a motorist drives in, until they pay and set off again. The characteristic signage, one-way traffic and clearly-marked pedestrian pathways provide an enhanced level of safety. Parking Hosts are on hand should they be needed and customers can always contact the Q-Park Control Room, which is available around the clock.
Thanks to its investment, Q-Park achieved a 39% increase in short-stay parking revenue over time, with an even more marked rise in long-stay parking. This has resulted in an overall revenue growth of 72% since acquiring the site.
For customers, the car park is convenient and easy to access, offering added value to visitors, who can spend their time relaxing and focusing on looking for new ideas for their home.
