The competition area, for which residential and administrative buildings are planned, is located in a prominent corner of Hamburg’s HafenCity, in the immediate vicinity of the historic Speicherstadt. The residential tower, as head of the three-building complex, defines the street corner. Due to their multi-level structure and the addition of ramps and stairs, the courtyards between the buildings are given an interesting topography. Striking horizontal ribbon windows structure the slightly inclined metal and exposed concrete facade, which, with its various gradations, shimmers like a reflecting water surface and provides a contrast to the brick buildings of the Speicherstadt. The compactness of the structure, the use of high-quality, natural and durable materials, as well as energy-efficient construction methods, form the basis for a sustainable use.
