HAFENCITY

Hamburg, Germany

Hafencity is one of Europe’s most prominent city centre developments, with the extensive regeneration of Hamburg’s former docklands that will increase the city centre be forty percent.

This seven-storey brick-clad building is one of a group of four designed for office and retail use within the Uberseequartier. The design for the building is inspired by the imposing warehouses and container stacks of its industrial context. Together, the group form a calm backdrop of city fabric, creating a square at their centre and facing a shopping boulevard, the backbone of the new quarter.
