  • Tevion1505 (Andreas)

    The state central bank building was and is unique among the bank and office buildings in Wuppertal. It was built in the 1890s and, with its architectural forms, refers to models of Italian Renaissance architecture. Elements of northern Italian palazzo architecture have been implemented down to the last detail on the three-storey rectangular building. The facades are designed in balanced proportions in themselves and in relation to one another. The seven axes on the long side open in large arcades with set balustrades, while the smaller arched windows on the two upper floors are provided with aedicules. The ground floor and first floor are divided by a circumferential, richly profiled cornice, which is added above the third floor and is transferred to a cantilevered cornice with a classic order.

    The building of the Landeszentralbank and former Prussian Reichsbank is one of the most beautiful buildings in downtown Elberfeld. Its clear cube and the calm proportions of the facade give the entire shore of Iceland an attractive character. jb
