Invited competition with 5 participants for a commercial building with harbour-themed work stations on the Lotsenkai. A new commercial building is planned for a company involved in the supply of ship parts. The building highlights the significance of the harbour’s edge with its elevated structure protruding out towards the old quay wall. The homogeneous volume, slightly fractured in several places, stands as an independent monolith in dialogue with the existing typology of the port. Through the “insertion” of two storey functional structures – elegant “containers” made of quality materials – the harbour theme is once again highlighted, providing a counterpoint to the open spaces and the two rectangular blocks.
